B.S. in Engineering with Electrical Concentration

Build on your passion for engineering at one of two locations.

Electrical Engineers develop innovative solutions and work with technology in a wide variety of applicable fields, such as computer networking and telecommunications. Students will gain experience and knowledge through our hands-on electrical engineering curriculum.

Our graduates are highly sought out and employed by companies such as the National Security Agency, Northrop Grumman, Phenix Technologies, and other U.S. Government agencies.

  • Engineering Materials and Manufacturing
  • Fundamentals of Materials Engineering
  • Microfabrication
  • Nanotechnology
  • Metal, Ceramic, Polymer Materials Engineering and Manufacturing

You Have Options

The engineering program at FSU provides many options for meeting your individual needs. Partnering with institutions of higher education across the state of Maryland, FSU helps you choose how to best fulfill your personal goals. The Electrical Engineering Concentration offers two pathway options:

Beyond the Classroom

In addition to coursework, you'll have a variety of ways to build your skill set and resume.

  • Gain real-world experience with the technology you will use in your career through an internship or FSU work-study as a lab assistant. Past FSU engineering students have had internships with companies such as NASA, J.F. Taylor, Jefferson Lab, Cardinal Scientific, and Northrop Grumman.
  • Prepare to join top companies in the region and beyond.
  • Use state-of-the-art technology, such as additive manufacturing 3D print lab, materials testing lab, computational engineering workstations, robotics lab and many other great resources.
  • Develop leadership skills by joining engineering clubs such as The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and The National Society of Black Engineers and take part in volunteer and outreach events with fellow students.

About Our Engineering Faculty

  • Learn one-on-one with your professors in small classes that give you an abundance of resources and guidance.
  • Discover your interest in engineering with professors who can provide you with unique hands-on learning, such as interdisciplinary capstone project development and collaboration opportunities in energy, autonomous vehicles, sensing, defense corps and more.

Career Outlook for Electrical Engineers

Electrical Engineering is an in-demand field of engineering, with many electrical engineers employed in telecommunication industries, semi-conductor/electronics manufacturing, and the federal government, including research and development for aviation, satellites, radar, and communications systems.
