Studying electrical engineering at LMU means receiving a world-class engineering education in a setting that allows for creativity and experimentation, with small class sizes and access to cutting-edge facilities. LMU's undergraduate program instills a deep understanding of electrical systems and their construction with a focus on design, teamwork and communication and enables students to use skills learned to help solve real-world problems. Students will work hands-on alongside distinguished faculty, and have the chance to hone in on topic areas of their choice. The work of electrical engineers can be seen in everything from smartphone design and wireless technology to the electrical systems of aircrafts, and after graduation, electrical engineers may find themselves in a variety of environments and industries including leading companies Raytheon, Boeing, CalTrans, and LADWP, and prestigious government sponsored programs by NASA and the National Science Foundation. The research opportunities encouraged at LMU provide a strong foundation for any career journey.
