Bachelor of Science in
Electrical Engineering

The Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering provides students with the opportunity to acquire a broad background in circuit theory, communication systems, computers, control systems, electromagnetic fields, energy sources and systems, and electronic devices. Emphasis on design places Embry-Riddle Electrical Engineering students in a unique position to increase employment opportunities after graduation. At Embry-Riddle, right from the start students have hands-on design and assembly opportunities. During the first year, students in the Bachelors of Electrical Engineering degree program work with a team to build an autonomous robot that competes against other robotic systems to complete a defined task.

Throughout Electrical Engineering studies, students are educated in the discipline’s theory and receive practical hands-on experience, culminating with the highly regarded senior capstone course that follows the development cycle of an actual engineering project.

Emphasis on design and laboratory experience ensures that the Embry-Riddle electrical engineering graduate is in a preferred position to enter industry practice or graduate school after completing the program.

ERAU faculty who are leading experts in avionics and systems engineering immerse students in real-world scenarios and empower them to think as an engineer.  

The Electrical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

Students may take advantage of the opportunity to join professional associations such as the student chapter of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), Society of Women Engineers (SWE), Amateur Radio Club, and the Satellite Development Club.
