Electrical engineering has one of the largest overall enrollments at MC. It is probably also the discipline with the largest diversity of sub-specialties. Topics range from the microscopic devices connected with modern communications and computer design, to the gigantic components associated with power production and transmission. Many bioengineering fields also emphasize the application of electrical engineering principles.

Program Outcomes

Upon completion of this program a student will be able to:

  • Identify, formulate, and solve basic physics and engineering problems in analog and digital circuits.
  • Design simple systems and circuits using analytical and numerical methods in the area of Electrical Engineering.
  • Use appropriate computer application software in electrical engineering.

Program Advising 

Meet with your academic advisor regularly to make sure you are on track to graduate and/or transfer. The program advising guide outlines the degree requirements and is meant to supplement the advising process. 

Transfer Opportunities

This track will prepare students to transfer to a four-year university with a major in electrical engineering.  See all engineering transfer agreements.


Career possibilities include electronics Engineer, electrical engineer, electrical engineering technician, and electronics engineering technologist.


Suggested Course Sequence: Electrical Engineering

A suggested course sequence for students follows.

  • All students should review the advising guide and consult an advisor.
  • Find out about related programs and course in the Fields of Study section.
  • Most courses have either assessment levels that must be met or prerequisites (courses that must be taken first). Part-time students and those who need to meet assessment levels or take prerequisite courses will take longer to complete a degree. An advisor will help make sure you are taking your courses in the right order.
  • All degree-seeking students must take a central group of General Education courses in English, mathematics, arts, behavioral and social sciences, humanities, and science. These courses are included in the suggested course sequence below.

Suggested Course Sequence
