The Electrical Engineering program is designed to prepare students to design and imporve electrical, elctronic, and computer systems. The program of study combines practical exposure to the most modern technologies available with a theoretical foundation that empowers students to master future changes and innovations as technologies continue to evolve at an astonishing pace.

It is the goal of the program that all graduates gain relevant and fulfilling employment and that many continue their educations to pursue a graduate degree. The program is comprised of an Electrical Engineering Core that builds the fundamental electrical engineering skills and knowledge. Students then select an area of concentration according to their persoal interests and career goals.


NTU's Electrical Engineering program is accreditated by ABET from October 1, 2015 until September 30, 2024. View accreditation information


ABET Program Educational Objectives
Our Electrical Engineering alumni will show that they meet expectations by performing within one or more of these parameters in five to seven years after graduation.

  1. Show progress in their career through greater supervisory tasks advancing to larger managerial responsibilty or increasing technical accountability.
  2. Acquire professional engineer's license, other certifications of expertise in technical areas or attend graduate school in an appropriate technical discipline.
  3. Demonstrate success by continuing employment and/or technical accomplishments as entrepreneurs, civil servants or in commercial or industrial endeavors.


Student Outcomes
The outcomes of the Electrical Engineering undergraduate program are to educate students who will have to:

  1. An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
  2. An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
  3. An ability to design systems, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability and sustainability.
  4. An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams.
  5. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
  6. An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
  7. An ability to communicate effectively.
  8. The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering soluctions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
  9. A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning.
  10. A knowledge of contemporary issues.
  11. An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.


The program currently has three concentrations:

  • Computer Engineering / Digital Systems
  • Electrical Power and Energy Systems
  • Mnaufacturing

Additional concentrations can be added to the program as world needs and student interest evolve.

It is the objective of the program to become accredited by the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET) and the curriculum has been designed to satisfy current ABET requirements.
