EE undergraduate students

The EE program at UNT offers you a hands-on project-oriented education for development of state-of-the-art electrical/electronic/embedded systems by integrating theoretical concepts and practical insights. Students are well prepared for industry through semester-long projects executed every semester following an engineering product life cycle involving various stages from the requirement and functional specifications, through design to testing.

Our focus on undergraduate and graduate research gives students greater opportunities to explore innovative ideas and place them at the forefront of EE technology.

We foster among our students team spirit to solve intriguing real world problems together.

Electrifying Inspiration

  • Your coursework will feature "learning-to-learn" experiences in projects taught jointly by industry and university personnel.
