The Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, The electrical engineering program provides students with the knowledge of basic and advanced topics in the areas of design and analysis of VLSI and electronic circuits, design and analysis of computer architecture, microprocessors, communication systems, signal processing and control systems. This program develops an ability to apply design and analysis knowledge to the practice of electrical engineering in an effective and professional manner. This knowledge can be applied to various engineering practices in aerospace, computer, electrical, electronics and other applied fields.

The Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering provides advanced knowledge and competency in the theory and practice of electrical engineering. The program prepares students to pursue a wide range of professional engineering activities in the areas of communications systems/signal processing, computer engineering, control systems, electronics and circuit theory, and systems engineering.

The Electrical Engineering programs at CSUF provide the best qualities of teaching, scholarship and professional practice; and are committed to facilitate the education of engineering undergraduate and graduate students for their entrance into, and significant contribution to, the engineering profession. Our students are actively engaged and work in collaboration with faculty and staff to acquire and expand knowledge.
