Welcome To
Electrical Engineering

The Department of Electrical Engineering offers a four-year degree program leading to the degree Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE). The Electrical Engineering Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. Our accredited electrical engineering program is one of only three in Arkansas located at public institutions. ATU offers the following degrees:

Program: Bachelor of Science Electrical Engineering
Major: Electrical Engineering

Program: Bachelor of Science Electrical Engineering
Major: Electrical Engineering With Computer Engineering Option

Students benefit from the hands-on approach to many of the courses and the creative applications for both classes and labs. Faculty encourage undergraduate students to work with them on undergraduate research projects in our exceptional labs.

Our graduates work all across the country while most prefer to stay in Arkansas. Popular fields include the power industry, military contractors, consulting firms, communications, manufacturing, robotics, and many other areas.

ABETPlease call our Admissions Office to schedule a visit with faculty and tour our labs.

Best wishes for success in all your endeavors.
