A Hands-On Electrical Engineering Program
Parks College electrical engineering program emphasizes hands-on problem solving in labs, regularly applying theories studied in the classroom.
Saint Louis University’s Parks College of Engineering, Aviation and Technology students enrolled in the electrical engineering program get the unique opportunity to apply the knowledge learned in lectures to solve real-world problems throughout their time in the undergraduate program. Here are just some of the ways students get their hands dirty.
An Electrical Engineering Education with Lots of Laboratory Work
Beginning as a freshman student at SLU’s Parks College, electrical engineering majors are immersed with working in our state-of-the-art laboratories. They have the chance to conduct experiments that apply principles used in the creation of modern technologies such as smart phones, consumer electronics and more.
Students also learn several computer engineering principles while working in the labs, and even have the chance to pursue a computer science minor while majoring in electrical engineering.
Student Groups & Activities that Utilize Electrical Engineering Skills
- Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) - Many students enrolled in our electrical engineering program are actively involved in the IEEE. This award-winning student organization regularly participates in black box and robotics competitions, and often wins these when competing against other universities at a regional and national scale.
- Weekly Innovation Challenge - Electrical engineering students are encouraged to assemble a group of three and participate in a competition that awards the winning team $300 for taking first place. Students are challenged to think quickly during this impromptu challenge that tests engineering and creativity skills simultaneously.
- Final Senior Design Projects - The senior design project is the culmination of all the hands-on electrical engineering skills learned throughout the undergraduate program at Parks College. Students have the opportunity to apply the concepts learned throughout their four years of courses to create a one-of-a-kind engineering project.
