Electrical Engineering Concentration

Electrical engineers apply mathematical and scientific principles to design components and systems that create and harness electricity and electromagnetic energy.  According to the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), "Electrical engineers work in multimedia, telecommunications, electric power, signal processing, and control. They work with physicians on new diagnostic devices and with urban planners on new efficient vehicles. Their work makes our lives more interesting, effective and safe, and increases our productivity and standard of living."  

More information about the field of electrical engineering, including short interviews with practicing professionals, is available at the Sloan Career Cornerstone Center.
