Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering

Electrical and Mechanical Engineering majors take Villanova’s course in Real Time Systems & Controls.

All undergraduates in Electrical Engineering study the following: 

Analog and digital electronics
Communication systems
Control systems
DC and AC circuits

Electric energy systems
Electronic materials and devices
Signal processing

Areas of specialization include:

  • Biomedical engineering (instrumentation and system design)
  • Electric energy systems (renewable energy and electric machines and drives)
  • Electronics (integrated circuits, optoelectronics, power, and communication)
  • Embedded systems (microcontrollers, mobile devices, and control theory)
  • High frequency systems (photonics and RF and microwave circuit design)
  • Signal processing (digital systems and biomedical applications)

Over three semesters, students complete a real-world senior capstone design project with a team of fellow Electrical and Computer Engineering majors. These projects are often sponsored by industry partners or reflect international service work.
