Athletics and Electrical Engineering

Electrical Engineering has a long history of successful student-athletes. Read more about our 19 NCAA Division III on our athletics webpage.

Senior Design Projects

All students must complete a  year long Senior Design Project in order to graduate. The range of topics is incredibly wide. Some projects are sponsored by industry and some are initiated by faculty members and students.

Aside from being excellent networking opportunities with future employers, the Senior Design Project themselves are "industrial strength" undertakings that involve proposals, review, formal presentations, and ordering necessary parts, not to mention having to plan for contingencies if parts do not arrive.

View some examples of the quality Senior Design Projects that our students take on.
