What does an Electrical Engineer do?

The world runs on electricity and technology – it’s integrated into everything we do, from maintaining transportation grids to improving the microchip technology in our phones. Electrical engineers use their systems mindset to design, develop, test, and supervise manufacturing of electric cars, smart phones, GPS technology, and anything that uses magnetism and electricity.

What can I do with a Master's in Electrical Engineering?

With a master’s degree in electrical engineering, you might pursue a career in a wide range of sectors including aerospace, automotive, energy, IT, or telecommunications.

There are several reasons for this. Technology is advancing at the speed of light, creating a need for more complex consumer electronics. This growth fuels the need for qualified electrical and electronics engineers in research and development. Here, the task of future electrical engineers will be to design distribution systems related to new technologies such as power grid infrastructure, solar arrays, semiconductors, automation, and communications.

Electrical engineers work in commercial, industrial, military, and scientific sectors. In these settings, they hold many job titles related to their function:

  • Circuits Engineer
  • Design Engineer
  • Electrical Controls Engineer
  • Electrical Design Engineer
  • Electrical Project Engineer

Programme Structure

  • A total of at least 30 credit hours must be taken from among the graduate course offerings of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. These credits must be taken at Drexel University. No transfer credit may be used to fulfill these requirements, regardless of content equivalency.
  • The remaining courses needed to reach the minimum credit hour requirement for the degree program are considered elective courses. Elective courses can be chosen from among the graduate course offerings of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering; other departments within the College of Engineering; the School of Biomedical Science, Engineering and Health Systems; the Department of Mathematics; the Department of Physics; the Department of Chemistry and the Department of Biology.
