Program Description

Nearly every industry utilizes electrical engineers. Graduates have the qualifications to enter careers in areas such as, but not limited to, telecommunications, computer engineering, manufacturing, aerospace industry, power generation and distribution, alternative energy, robotics, and automation. Typical job titles for graduates may include electrical engineer, electronics engineer, telecommunications engineer, project engineer, planner, project supervisor, consulting engineer, and design engineer.

Electrical Engineering requires rigorous training in basic engineering principles along with the development of skills in the areas of planning and management of design projects and the associated systems and resources. Graduates in the area of Electrical Engineering will be required to master technical elements and to demonstrate particular competence in the areas of communication, fiscal management, and project control. The broad-based background is tailored to develop professionals who will be able to move between the technical and managerial aspects of electrical engineering projects and to serve in key leadership positions within the engineering profession.

Program Educational Objectives: Program educational objectives are broad statements that describe career and professional accomplishments that the program prepares graduates to achieve during the first few years following graduation. Graduates of electrical engineering will:

  1. Demonstrate career advancement with increasing responsibility in the electrical engineering industry as owners, managers, lead engineers, or other key positions of leadership.
  2. Meet the educational requirements to pursue registration as a professional engineer in the State of Georgia and all other states in the nation.
  3. To produce graduates who possess effective research and development skills and who are successfully enrolled in graduate education within Electrical Engineering and related fields. 


This program is a part of the Southern Polytechnic College of Engineering and Engineering Technology .
