Electrical Engineering (4 ½-year) Bachelor's Degree Overview
Electrical engineering is one of the largest departments in The University of Toledo’s College of Engineering.
Electrical engineers design, develop and operate devices, systems and practices that require in-depth knowledge of electricity. They have contributed to almost all modern inventions — from microchips and computers to medical devices and space-age satellite communications.
UToledo’s engineering program has an entrepreneurial focus. We give students the know-how to run with their ideas and inventions.
Electrical Engineering (4 ½-year) Bachelor's Degree Highlights
- Mandatory co-ops. UT is one of just eight universities in the U.S. to require engineering students to work in the field. These three semesters of paid experience make our graduates highly attractive to employers.
- Design experience. Hit the ground running your freshman year with a hands-on introductory design course. By senior year, you’re designing a solution or prototype for a real client.
- Entrepreneurial focus. Incoming freshmen receive special training on starting their own businesses and promoting their inventions and ideas.
