    The technology that improve lives

    and shapes society is more powerful

    and changing more rapidly than any

    other time in human history.

    We are in the midst of a digital revo-

    lution that will transform life on this

    planet—be a part of it.

    The world of the future—the very

    near future—will have billions of

    devices connected on the Internet

    of Things, equipped with advanced

    sensors, communicating at the

    speed of light over a fast network,

    and working together using the

    latest algorithms for artifcial intelli-

    gence and deep learning.

    None of this happens without elec-

    trical and computer engineers who

    design, implement, and test all the

    pieces of the system. The work is

    important. Opportunities abound in

    these areas:

    █ green energy solutions

    █ autonomous vehicles

    █ robotics and automation

    █ energy storage

    █ artifcial intelligence

    █ cyber security

    █ the Internet of Things

    █ next-generation smartgrids

    █ biomedical technology

    Electrical engineers lead the way in

    communications, sensors, electronics,

    signal processing, robotics, control,

    automation, and the transmission and

    distribution of electrical power.

    It starts with electricity and goes much

    further, into all the products, compo-

    nents, and systems made possible by

    our ability to control electrical charge

    and voltage at extraordinarily high

    speeds and microscopic scales.

    Here at Michigan Tech, you will start

    your courses with the fundamentals–

    circuit theory, digital logic, electro-

    magnetics—and work your way up to

    complex devices and systems with

    plenty of hands-on experience along

    the way.

    Control engineering is in high demand

    among recruiters seeking our gradu-

    ates. With a focus in controls, you will

    learn how to integrate physical sys-

    tems with the internet, design robots

    for thousands of diferent tasks, and

    keep an autonomous vehicle on the

    road safely.

    EE Concentrations

    Photonics

    Photonics is an exciting area of EE that

    deals with optical energy. You may

    produce holograms, design vision sen-

    sors for a robot, or imaging techniques

    for outer space.

    Electric Power Engineering

    Specialize in systems that provide

    power and electricity to communities

    and plants.

    Biomedical Applications

    Design and improve medical devices,

    such as scopes, lasers, pacemakers,

    MRI, and surgical equipment.

    Environmental Applications

    Design and develop sensing systems.

    Detect and measure pollution, search

    for objects, or map a trail system.

    No feld is changing faster and hav

    ing a bigger impact in today’s world

    than computing and information

    technology.

    To keep pace with this change, there

    is unprecedented demand for com

    puter engineers who understand

    digital hardware and software, and

    can interface computing technology

    with other engineered systems.

    Working as a computer engineer,

    you may specialize in one area, such

    as embedded systems, computer

    networks, robotics, or VLSI system

    design. You may also fnd yourself

    working with other engineering

    disciplines—for example, teaming

    up with civil engineers to design

    software testing the stress points in

    a bridge, or with mechanical engi

    neers to design a satellite control

    system.

    Computer engineering projects

    range from designing nano-technol

    ogy for bionic implants to inventing

    software that detects brain tumors

    much earlier, from creating special

    efects for movies to predicting the

    No feld is changing faster and hav-

    ing a bigger impact in today’s world

    than computing and information

    technology.

    To keep pace with this change, there

    is unprecedented demand for com-

    puter engineers who understand

    digital hardware and software, and

    can interface computing technology

    with other engineered systems.

    Working as a computer engineer,

    you may specialize in one area, such

    as embedded systems, computer

    networks, robotics, or VLSI system

    design. You may also fnd yourself

    working with other engineering

    disciplines—for example, teaming

    up with civil engineers to design

    software testing the stress points in

    a bridge, or with mechanical engi-

    neers to design a satellite control

    system.

    Computer engineering projects

    range from designing nano-technol-

    ogy for bionic implants to inventing

    software that detects brain tumors

    much earlier, from creating special

    efects for movies to predicting the

    strength of earthquakes through

    computer simulation.

    Electrical engineers lead the way in

    communications, sensors, electronics,

    signal processing, robotics, control,

    automation, and the transmission and

    distribution of electrical power.

    It starts with electricity and goes much

    further, into all the products, compo-

    nents, and systems made possible by

    our ability to control electrical charge

    and voltage at extraordinarily high

    speeds and microscopic scales.

    Here at Michigan Tech, you will start

    your courses with the fundamentals–

    circuit theory, digital logic, electro-

    magnetics—and work your way up to

    complex devices and systems with

    plenty of hands-on experience along

    the way.

    Control engineering is in high demand

    among recruiters seeking our gradu-

    ates. With a focus in controls, you will

    learn how to integrate physical sys-

    tems with the internet, design robots

    for thousands of diferent tasks, and

    keep an autonomous vehicle on the

    road safely.

    EE Concentrations

    Photonics

    Photonics is an exciting area of EE that

    deals with optical energy. You may

    produce holograms, design vision sen-

    sors for a robot, or imaging techniques

    for outer space.

    Electric Power Engineering

    Specialize in systems that provide

    power and electricity to communities

    and plants.

    Biomedical Applications

    Design and improve medical devices,

    such as scopes, lasers, pacemakers,

    MRI, and surgical equipment.

    Environmental Applications

    Design and develop sensing systems.

    Detect and measure pollution, search

    for objects, or map a trail system.
