Electrical engineers are highly desired across industries from engineering space-borne sensing instruments to developing the 6G network to envisioning more sustainable electricity systems for the future. As an Electrical Engineering student at UMass Amherst, you'll learn to design and build the devices and systems that will shape the technological landscape of tomorrow.

At UMass Amherst, you'll use physics, mathematics, and computation principles to undertake foundational electrical engineering aspects such as circuits, electromagnetism, computer programming, and signal processing. Then, you can tailor your degree to pursue your unique talents and interests in areas like communication systems, microelectronic fabrication, and microwave engineering.

You'll create real-world innovations in M5, the 5,000-square-foot makerspace of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Work on your own ideas, team up on collaborative projects with community partners, or work one-on-one with mentors from industry and academia.
