Concentrations

Electronics
This concentration takes the student to higher levels of digital circuitry and microprocessor-based design and exposes them to the fundamentals of digital and analog communication and modern control theory. High-level software design tools along with system simulation software augment the enhanced coverage of these advanced electronic concepts.

Nanotechnology
This concentration addresses the explosive growth being experienced in the nanotechnology field through courses and curriculum to mitigate the shortage of engineers, technologists, and technicians who support experimentation, fabrication and testing. Our courses relate to nano-electronics design and fabrication, as well as biomedical research and energy R&D.

Power Systems
This concentration explores the generation, transmission, and control of electrical power and equipment. Programmable logic controllers and their applications in industrial control, as well as DC and AC power generation and conversion, are covered. Virtual instrumentation and data acquisition is also covered, two important aspects of power systems and their operation and control.
