Electrical engineers research, design, develop, test, and oversee the development of electronic systems and the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipment and devices.
This includes a broad range of applications and specializations that generally involve both hardware and software—areas such as power systems, communications, analog and digital signal processing, embedded systems, and control systems.

Products developed by electrical engineers often have significant impacts on society, like portable smart devices, medical instrumentation, electric and smart vehicles, sensor networks, and renewable and smart energy systems.
Students may choose a concentration in either Electronics or Energy. Both concentrations include a common electrical engineering core.

The Electronics curriculum involve the development, design, and application of circuits, devices, and firmware for embedded systems. Content includes digital and analog electronics, embedded microcontrollers, communications, controls, and digital signal processing.

The Energy curriculum includes a combination of advanced electrical engineering courses and interdisciplinary courses in the sciences, economics, policy, and the environment. Topics deal with the sources, generation, control, and utilization of electric power, energy conversion and storage; and smart power topics such as system analysis, protection and stability, solid state motor control, and industrial process control systems. Projects are normally interdisciplinary, in collaboration with faculty in the Institute for Energy Studies.

During their senior year, Electrical Engineering students design and implement a project of their choosing. Projects are often in collaboration with companies in industry, and are presented at a spring demonstration.
