Electronic Circuits (Electrical)


Electronic circuit engineers design and construct a large variety of electronic circuits that are often part of more complex electronic devices such as computers, cell phones and other wireless devices, audio and video equipment, medical devices, military electronics, and household and automotive electronics.

Depending on the courses selected, completion of electronic circuits area coursework can provide additional understanding of topics related to the physics underlying electronic devices, the design, simulation, and testing of board-level, and anolog and digital integrated circuits, and the sophisticated embeded circuit and interface applications that these circuits make possible.

Electronic circuit engineers work in a broad range of industries, including the telecommunications, medical, military, consumer electronics, and automotive industries.
