Undergraduate Studies

Career Potential

Our graduates will have the basic experimental, design and communication skills needed either to continue on to the graduate level or to pursue careers in an extremely diverse field including government and industrial sectors, with job responsibilities in research, design, development, and operations.

Electrical engineers work in companies that are developing:

  • Computers
  • Semiconductor integrated circuits and devices
  • Telecommunications systems
  • Aerospace and aviation systems
  • Imaging techniques
  • Sensors
  • Wireless networks
  • And that's just a start. More and more of the objects in our world are powered by electrical engineers.

The Dallas-Fort Worth region has been especially attractive and rewarding for electrical engineers in recent years. Numerous local, national and international high-tech companies offer excellent career opportunities for electrical engineers.

Majoring in Electrical Engineering

UNT offers an innovative undergraduate program leading to a bachelor’s degree. The design- and project-oriented program integrates concepts, analysis, design and development of tomorrow’s electrical systems. You will have “learning-to-learn” experiences in projects that are taught jointly by industry and university personnel. This active learning emphasizes knowledge and skills so that you can solve real-world electrical engineering problems.

Your education will include a one-year sequence of business and marketing courses to enhance the global outlook for your profession, to ensure that you will have an opportunity to solve multidisciplinary engineering problems by working in teams, and to develop effective oral and written communication skills.
