Knowledge Is Power.

Electrical engineering was recently cited by Money Magazine online (November 14, 2004) as one of the “Top Ten Degrees in Demand.” No one understands that demand better than Wilkes.

to design, build and test computers, power generation, communications (audio, broadcast, and telecommunications), nanotechnology, robotics and instrumentation, becoming strong, desirable, and sought-out candidates for positions in the electrical engineering field. 

The Instruments

are only as good as the ability to physically apply them in a hands-on environment…and besides, it’s what engineers like to do! In our Mechatronics Lab, students interface the electrical and mechanical world commencing in the sophomore year, learning how to automate laboratory testing and data collection. In our MEMS (Micro-ElectroMechanical Systems) and Thin Films Labs, you can design, build and test a transistor or transducer as an undergraduate! (You can’t do this as an undergraduate elsewhere. If you don’t believe us, ask around.) In our Digital Design Lab, build and demonstrate a locally networked computer from the ground up, starting with wires and chips based on Motorola architecture. In our Communications Lab, design, build and test radio frequency transmitters, receivers and antennae.

Other labs and facilities include Electronics Lab, Electrical Machines Lab, and Machine Shop. include Fairchild Semiconductor, where Michael, a junior, worked with a design team for 7 months on the performance troubleshooting of a 5th generation Power Trench (PT5) device. At Tobyhanna Army Depot, students worked with systems diagnostics and automated troubleshooting of military communications systems and subsystems. Automation of quality data collection for the production of high-end electronics cabling was the project of another intern at MegaPhase Electronics.

Graduates have been repeatedly offered positions

resulting from their internships, and have been recruited for positions at companies such as Proctor & Gamble and Lockheed-Martin.

Our engineering faculty are active teachers who work closely with students in classrooms and laboratories; labs are not taught by graduate student teaching assistants. The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET.
