B.S. in Electrical Engineering

Ingeniería Eléctrica

This program is avaialble at: Main Campus.

The conveniences that we enjoy today are made possible by the effective utilization of electrical energy.  This form of energy has enabled a wide spectrum of technologies ranging from computers to robotics to industrial automation to medical imaging to wireless communication.  The standard of living of a country is judged by the consumption of electrical energy per capita.  The Electrical Engineering Program offers the student an exciting curriculum covering diverse areas including power, electronics, computers, controls, communications, and signal processing.  Students will be well prepared to tackle problems in these areas and become agents of innovation in an increasingly complex world.  In circuits and electronics, students are introduced to energy sources, circuit elements, and devices that are encountered in practical electrical networks.  In power systems, students are given the background to understand the generation, transmission, and distribution of electric power.  In computers, students learn the principles under which computers are built and communicate among themselves; students also learn how to design software for applications such as the Internet.  In control systems, students are introduced to the design techniques for the automatic monitoring of industrial processes.  In communications and signal processing, students learn the modulation techniques used in analog and digital communication systems, and filter design for processing images and audio signals.
