Electrical Engineering

Career Paths

As stated in the Electrical Engineering Department mission, we “…prepare students to become outstanding electrical engineers.” 

The EE program emphasizes course work and other experiences that enable students to obtain, and be successful, in a position in the electrical engineering industry.

The department has graduated outstanding EEs as measured by:

  • starting salaries (typically in the $55,000 range);
  • finding employment (close to 100% find work within two months of graduation, and many commit to jobs before graduation).

Students find work at companies including Raytheon, Teradyne, National Grid, Analog Devices, Vicor, and many others.  The department keeps track of students after graduation, and finds that most remain employed and continue to progress in their respective companies.

While many students go directly into full-time work in industry, some attend graduate school at institutions including Georgia Tech, Harvard, and Cornell.   In addition, most students who go directly into industry also pursue a part-time master’s degree that usually is paid for by their company.
