Hands-on ExperiencePhysics Students

Our electrical engineering and physics faculty are active teachers who work closely with students in classrooms and laboratories; labs are not taught by graduate student teaching assistants. As part of Electrical Engineering and Physics program, you will graduate with confidence in your ability to understand and solve problems because we will help you develop a mental discipline for critical thinking.

Wilkes electrical engineering graduates have been successfully placed in numerous regional, national, and multi-national industries. When you go out into the world, you will look for the next problem to solve. Wilkes graduates who do that well are highly valued by their employers.


The mission for engineering students is to enable the professional development of their abilities for analysis and design within the context of environment. The Wilkes view emphasizes engineering as a creative, hands-on profession with leadership responsibilities. Teamwork, ethics, and professional communications permeate the educational experience to enhance the graduate’s technical problem solving ability. Wilkes Engineering graduates will possess the vision, confidence, and will to pursue and assume increasing responsibilities in engineering and leadership throughout their careers.


The vision of Department of Electrical Engineering is to be recognized as the finest small engineering program in Pennsylvania.
