Advances in electrical engineering are driving a transformation in global technology. Electrical engineers design and build the hardware, networking, and sensing technologies that power smart devices and the Internet of Things.
The Electrical Engineering offered by Coursera in partnership with University of Colorado Boulder is centered around subjects such as embedded systems, power electronics, and photonics. These are the building blocks of cell phones, computers, electric and autonomous vehicles, renewable energy grids, LED lighting, advanced medical devices, and much more. The curriculum is influenced by CU Boulder’s close relationships with industry leaders and taught by world-class faculty in the electrical engineering field.
