B.S.E. in Electrical Engineering

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.

B.S.E. in Electrical Engineering Curriculum
Electrical engineering majors begin their academic experience at LMU with the university's core curriculum and building-block engineering, math, and science courses that will help set them up for success in advanced upper-division and senior project coursework. The program provides introduction to a diversity of research areas and includes the option of an emphasis in computer engineering.

Minor in Electrical Engineering

A minor in electrical engineering is also supported. Course work includes 19 semester hours to be determined in consultation with the Department Chairperson. All minor programs require the approval of the faculty advisor and Department Chairperson from the student’s major program of study.
