BABA General Studies Specialization: Electrical Engineering

The Electrical Engineering (EE) area of specialization is in a science-oriented branch of engineering primarily concerned with all phases, development and utilization of electronics, computer intelligence, and electrical energy. Electrical engineers design products and systems that meet the needs for today and tomorrow’s electrical, computer, and electronic systems. As examples, electrical engineers design communication systems, integral circuits and components that run computers, TVs, stereo systems, robots for automated factories; aircraft and spacecraft control systems; utility and industrial power systems; and biological/biomedical systems.
