B.S.E.E. in Electrical Engineering
Study and apply electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism to a wide array of careers
In the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering program at Ole Miss, students learn to understand, design, and develop devices and systems that operate on electric/battery power, or that generate electric power.
Students experience small upper-level electrical engineering classes with a low student to faculty ratio. The curriculum Ole Miss offers is continually updated in order to bring students hands-on experience and exposure to new technologies.
With a Bachelor in Science in Electrical Engineering from Ole Miss, graduates are able to work in industries such as power utilities, automobiles, chemical and petroleum, defense equipment, radars, spacecrafts, telecommunications, mobile phones, and computers. Emerging technologies include Internet of Things (IoT) applications, smart phones, and national defense.
Summer internships are available for Ole Miss students with companies located in Mississippi and surrounding states. These positions offer valuable experience and may lead to careers upon graduation.
B.S.E.E. in Electrical Engineering Faculty
EE faculty mentor students inside as well as outside the classroom. They provide advice regarding career-paths, pursuing advanced studies, and solving academic issues. EE faculty have industrial or research laboratory experience. Two faculty are fellows of the professional society, IEEE.
