Where Students Go

Electrical and computer engineers encompass the largest engineering work force in the U.S. These engineers design, develop, test and supervise the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipment such as iPods, cell phones and computers; and large scale systems such as power generation systems, hydroelectric plants, turbines and solar panels for homes, factories and business. Electrical engineers work on improving television and satellite transmissions, and are helping the military detect unexploded bombs. They also apply their understanding of electricity to make contributions to the field of medicine, such as improving or developing new analytical tools for doctors, or making cochlear implants for deaf persons more effective in interpreting sound. Computer engineers can specialize in digital systems, computer operating systems, networks, software and hardware.
