Why Electrical Engineering at UTA

Electrical engineers design, develop, test, and supervise the manufacturing of electrical equipment, such as electric motors, radar and navigation systems, communications systems, and power generation equipment, as well as robotics and control systems, nanoscale device technology and lasers. UTA’s Electrical Engineering Department offers focus areas in power systems, nanoelectronics and optics, sensors, controls, and autonomous vehicles, and communications and sensing. Our students gain valuable experience working alongside faculty researchers, completing senior design projects, and working at internships and co-ops, and they make lasting friendships and contacts in dozens of student organizations.

Students at internships and coops

Internships/Co-ops

The Co-op/Internship Office helps students gain placement in co-op and intern positions that will give undergraduate students practical work experience. Internships are generally completed off-campus during a semester or summer term, while students participating in co-ops alternate between full-time work and attending classes, one semester at a time.

Student participating in research

Research and Projects

Undergraduate students may take advantage of opportunities to work in faculty labs on funded research. In a new program at UTA, students may use federal work-study funds to earn money for such research.

I did hands-on research as an undergraduate research assistant in Dr. David Wetz’s Pulsed Power and Energy Lab. Our work will eventually enable the production of safer and more efficient batteries, thereby making renewables more practical. Mila, BSEE '15
