Electrical Engineering, B.S.

Talwar College of Engineering and Computer Sciences

Electrical engineers are skilled professionals who work in rapidly evolving careers related to electricity, electronics, hardware and software. Throughout history, they have played an immeasurable role in conceiving devices and technologies that we depend on every day; from battery chargers, to cellphones, to electrical systems in cars, to developing controls for food processing plants and more.

If you have a strong foundation in mathematics and science, a degree in electrical engineering could lead you to a rewarding career. You will take courses in circuit analysis, electronics, digital systems, programmable logic controllers, LabView and data acquisition systems, electromagnetics, electrical machines, controls, embedded systems and communications. Computer-based simulations and project-based laboratories will reinforce the course topics. When you graduate you will be able to pursue a job in a wide variety of electrical engineering fields. Our graduates get jobs all over the country.

Why choose Indiana Tech?

Our electrical engineering degree program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, under the General Criteria and the Electrical, Computer, Communications, Telecommunication(s) and Similarly Named Program Criteria.

Electrical Machines/Transformers and Control Lab

This lab is equipped with various types of state-of-the-art, computer-interfaced AC and DC motors, and single- and three-phase transformers. Using a servo drive and braking system, it is possible to easily simulate the performance of various motors (e.g., fans, pumps, compressors, flywheels) under different industrial loads.

Programable Logic Controllers Lab (PLC)

This lab is equipped with three Amatrol trainers, which are composed of an Allen-Bradley AB5300 L16 processor, a fault insertion system, and a PanelView Plus compact HMI panel. The trainer has the distinct feature of mimicking practical industrial temperature control application, variable speed drive application, reversing contractor application and stepper motor control application.

LabVIEW and Data Acquisition (DAQ) Lab

This lab is equipped with 10 LabVIEW licenses on 10 different computers, in addition to six LabJack U3-LV DAQ systems. This lab will provide students hands-on-experience in using industry-standard software that is used in 35,000 companies around the world.

PCB Rapid Prototyping Lab with LPKF Circuit Board Milling Machine

Equipped with an S103 LPKF Laser & Electronics benchtop prototyping system, this lab gives students experience in designing electronic circuits and creating printed circuit board (PCB) schematics.
