UNIVERSITY OF MISSISSIPPI SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES


The Schools of Nursing and Pharmacy operate on both the Oxford and Jackson campuses. The Schools of Dentistry, Health Related Professionals and Medicine, and the Health Sciences Graduate School, are based in Jackson only. (Additional healthcare programs are available through the School of Applied Sciences on the Oxford campus.) Other than these exceptions, the schools above are on the Oxford campus.

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.

Key Benefits

Students experience small upper-level electrical engineering classes with a low student to faculty ratio. The program curriculum is continually updated to bring students hands-on experience and exposure to new technologies.

Graduate Outcomes

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.

Experiences Offered

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.

Specializations

B.S.E.E. in Electrical Engineering Faculty

Electrical Engineering faculty members mentor students inside as well as outside the classroom. They provide advice regarding career paths, pursuing advanced studies, and solving academic issues. In addition to industrial or research laboratory experience, two Ole Miss faculty members are fellows of the professional society, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
