ALERT : Happy Holidays! Kettering University wishes you a happy holiday season! Normal business hours will resume on Monday, January 5.

Engineering Everything

Electrical Engineers pioneer novel solutions, design faster systems, and maximize reliability and safety. Every high-tech innovation has counted on Electrical Engineers to lead the way. Computers are embedded in an incredible range of modern products: cell phones, cameras, games, appliances, cars, airplanes, spacecraft, medical and military equipment—and that means just about every industry needs Computer Engineers.

All Electrical Engineering students take six core classes—the fundamentals. Then we’ll help you design a curriculum to fit your professional goals. You could learn how to analyze audio signals like the ones that come from an electric-guitar pickup or experiment with mechanisms like the ones that keep a car's power window from pinching a finger, or an industrial robot from knocking a person over.

The Computer Engineering program is all about embedded computers— not the kind that sit on your desktop, but the kind that are built into all sorts of modern products. In the core courses, you’ll learn everything about how computers work, from the bottom up. You’ll write your own real-time operating system!

Engineering for the Real World

If you think Electrical Engineers are basically highly paid electricians, it's time to get the big picture. The field includes a vast array of specialties in everything from wireless communication to electric machines to power electronics to alternative energy systems. Computer Engineers really understand computers. They know how to design them, using millions of transistors squeezed onto a chip of silicon smaller than a postage stamp. And they know to program them to do a job.

Our Accreditation

The Electrical Engineering program has been accredited since 1977 and the Computer Engineering program since 1998 by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (EAC/ABET). Kettering University has been accredited since 1962 by The Higher Learning Commission and is a member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
