Electrical engineering is a diverse field with many areas of specialization. Electronics, wireless communications, power, controls, and signal processing are some of the areas that electrical engineers can choose to specialize in. The electrical engineering curricular track offered by the department allows students to investigate these and other topics while pursuing the bachelor's of science in electrical engineering (BSEE) degree.

Eric Hee is one of the SU students who worked on a path-breaking solar project with PACCAR.
Story by:Amy Haedt A man from Japan, a man from China, a man from France, a man from Hawaii and a man from Washington all walk into a truck factory… What’s the punch line? The amazing truth is there is no punch line. This is a truly international SU Project Center team, working on a truly innovative solar power project with Kenworth Truck Company that will mark the company’s truck production plant in Renton as one of the largest non-utility scale photovoltaic (PV) solar arrays in the state.
Electrical and Computer Engineering students Junya Motoike, Siyu Zhang, Christopher Rabotin, Eric Hee and Don Sable have been charged with creating a design for a series of solar panels to be installed on the top of a building on the PACCAR/Kenworth campus in Renton, Washington. “Drivers on I-405 will be able to look out their windows and see one of the largest PV systems in the state of Washington.” says Kenworth Truck Company project sponsor, Facilities Engineer Frank Churchill.
“The goal of the project is to offset the annual energy consumed by the PACCAR Technology Center,” says Electrical and Computer Engineering Professor Henry Louie. “To do this requires a 36 kilowatt installation, consisting of over 190 PV panels,” Louie adds. Seattle University currently has an array that produces 5.3 kW of power. The peak output of the Kenworth system will be nearly 7 times that of the SU system. “The largest challenge with this project was to learn about solar panels and how a system of PV arrays work,” says Christopher Rabotin of France. “The international composition of our project team was really a great experience,” adds Don Sable. “We have a lot of different cultural perspectives, but we learned about valuable technology that we can each bring to our future careers regardless of the country where we are employed.” “Germany, for example, produces the most solar power in the world. It’s heavily subsidized,” says Louie. “In the US we must make the business case that the recovered energy justifies the investment,” adds Churchill. He continues, “Energy costs increased 3.8 percent in the month of April alone. If this system can result in direct transmission to the facility, the cost savings on energy may be quite tangible.”
Engineering challenges I faced at the Medishare hospital Haiti. George Balagtas
I generated a test protocol toward hopefully restoring X-ray functionality. The mechanical engineer who has been doing his best to troubleshoot the machine believes that there might be faulty circuitry on the PCB assembly. I did indeed discover three burnt out transistors, a couple of charred passives, and even two cracked IC's nearby the board's voltage regulators. Literally, that board is toast!

“Chelsea is admired by her peers and teachers not only for her tremendous amount of enthusiasm, creativity and leadership within SWE, but within the Seattle University campus and community as well,” says Kelly Schable, account manager at the Boeing Company.
Nick Arvanitidis, EE Graduate ’63, recipient Alumnus of the Year
Nick Arvanitidis considers himself “a philosopher,” one who offers sage advice culled from rich life experiences in the academic and business worlds. Being named Alumnus of the Year is a great honor, Arvanitidis says. “I am very grateful for what SU did for me,” he says. “Not just going to school here, but the mentoring that was provided. This is very humbling.”
