Electrical Engineering involves the design, development, testing and supervision of the manufacture of electrical equipment. Some of this equipment includes electric motors, machinery controls, lighting, and wiring in buildings, automobiles, aircraft, radar and navigation systems, and power-generating, controlling, and transmission devices used by electric utilities.
Electrical engineering graduates are heavily recruited by large and small companies for positions throughout the United States and abroad. These companies include computer, aerospace and automotive companies, telephone and power utilities, and electronics manufacturers, as well as companies in many other industries. There are also positions available in many government agencies.

Special Programs and Projects:
The Electrical Engineering Program at Wilberforce University was developed from Research Institute for Technical Careers established with a $1.3 million grant from NASA Lewis Research Center. Over the years, electrical engineering students have participated in various special programs such as WISE (Wilberforce Intensive Summer Experience), NNSA and STEP-UP programs. Electrical Engineering students have the opportunity to minor in Nuclear Engineering through a joint program with The Ohio State University. The joint program provides our students employment and internship opportunity at Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Idaho National Nuclear Laboratory, Pacific Northwest Nuclear Laboratory, and Dominion Nuclear Power Plant.
Most Popular Class:
The popular classes for Electrical Engineering students include Automatic Control, Microprocessor and Integrated Circuit Design. These courses provide the electrical engineering students hands-on experience in engineering analysis and design.
Electrical Engineering students have the opportunity to conduct research side by side with faculty mentors in government funded research such as NASA, National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), Office of Naval Research, and National Science Foundation. Also, our students have conducted research at government laboratories.
Special Interest Story:
Experience gained at Wilberforce University has enabled Electrical Engineering graduates to excel in their internships at NASA Lewis Research Center, Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Graduates from the Electrical Engineering program have completed their graduate studies at Wright State University, University of Tennessee, and The Ohio State University.
