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.
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.
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.
