With a degree in electrical engineering, computer engineering or engineering management, you will be poised to tackle some of the most important technical challenges facing society. In addition to the liberal education expected of all Miami undergraduates, our professors will guide and mentor you as you build a solid foundation in engineering, science, computing and mathematics. This foundation will enable you design technologies as diverse as robots, cell phones, GPS devices and computers. Hands-on experiences, teamwork and communication skills are integrated throughout the curriculum. Upon graduation, you will be prepared to enter industry or continue your education in graduate school.
