    The award jury met June 3, 2014, in Clemson, South Carolina, to select the $25,000 grand prize winner. The department received the top prize for its submission, Microgrid System for a Wind and Solar Farm Located in Rural Kenya. For the project, electrical engineering students worked as part of a team that also included faculty, professional engineers, and other professionals to design a hybrid wind- and solar-power microgrid system to provide electricity to a school and surrounding community in Muhuru Bay, Kenya.

    The Electrical Engineering department offers two related specialties, one in electrical engineering and the other in electrical engineering with a computer engineering specialization. 

    The electrical engineering major offers a broad curriculum that covers most of the various subfields of the profession. As its name implies, the specialization in computer engineering major focuses more specifically on software and hardware topics related to computer and other digital system design. 

    Both curricula lead to the same degree of Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. 


    Within the rich tradition of Jesuit education, it is the mission of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering to teach and prepare broadly-educated, socially-responsible, articulate, and skilled engineers for leadership in electrical engineering and related fields.

    Program Educational Objectives

    The electrical engineering program, in harmony with the university mission statement, strives to prepare graduates who will:

    • Make professional contributions through the attainment of a position in electricalengineering or related field (Professional formation).
    • Engage in personal and professional growth through the completion of advanced degrees orother forms of continuing education (Educating the whole person).
    • Contribute to society or the profession through the involvement in professionalorganizations or other service activity (Empowering leaders for a just and humane world).
