Electrical engineers design, develop, and test electrical equipment, such as electric motors, radar and navigation systems, communications systems, or power generation equipment. Electronics engineers design electronic components, software, products, or systems for a wide variety of industries and applications. Computer engineers design and develop hardware and software for computer systems, network architecture, and communications.
Your JBU education goes far beyond the fundamentals. Here, students are challenged to solve real-world problems with innovative solutions even in their first semester. Become immersed in the full design process, starting with brainstorming ideas, refining design, fabrication and troubleshooting, final testing, and ultimately presenting a final product unique to you and your inventiveness. This type of creative design space is the environment in which engineers thrive.
JBU provides a full engineering experience with specific concentrations to prepare students for a wide body of professional work. Because of JBU’s interdisciplinary engineering curriculum, our students are uniquely prepared for jobs requiring skill in mechanical and electrical system integration, such as control systems, electro-mechanical, and systems engineering. Our graduates go on to work for industry leaders such as NASA, Lockheed Martin, and Caterpillar.
