Welcome to Electrical Engineering
College of Engineering and Applied Sciences
The ABET accredited electrical engineering program is one of only three in Arkansas located at public institutions. Students have a choice of two paths through the program, the traditional electrical and computer engineering.



Lead The Way

Students benefit from the hands-on approach to many of the courses and the creative applications for both classes and labs. Faculty encourage undergraduate students to work with them on undergraduate research projects in our exceptional labs.

Our graduates work all across the country while most prefer to stay in Arkansas. Popular fields include the power industry, military contractors, consulting firms, communications, manufacturing, robotics, and many other areas.

Please call our Admissions Office to schedule a visit with faculty and tour our labs.
Best wishes for success in all your endeavors.
