Learn to Connect Conceptual Design to Practical Application
Guided by faculty-mentors, George Fox electrical engineering students engage in a rigorous hands-on learning environment that provides the best possible tools for success. You’ll prepare to become an electrical engineer in a highly personalized concentration within the engineering major where students learn to connect conceptual design and practical application. Beginning your freshman year, you’ll work with state-of-the-art equipment and newly renovated facilities that enable you to develop your ideas into tangible prototypes.
Research, Design and Deliver Solutions
The electrical engineering concentration prepares you to research, design and deliver electrical and electronics solutions involving communication and control systems, computers and robotics, electronics and instrumentation, energy and power systems and biomedical devices. This concentration appeals especially to students who enjoy a stimulating and rigorous course of study. Areas of specialization include communication systems, digital signal processing, wireless devices, integrated circuits, electric power, automatic controls, and optoelectronics.
A rising profession, electrical engineering offers a diverse range of career possibilities. Your work may range from development of electrical microchips for hospital patients, to design of hybrid vehicle electronic systems, to design of consumer electronics, or the development of large relays and generators for power stations. Often overlapping with computer engineering, a degree in electrical engineering can open doors to a technical career in most any industry.
As an electrical engineer, your capacity to impact society will be significant, beginning even as a student in the Servant Engineering program. As part of core curriculum, engineering students create solutions to great technical challenges – for instance, by devising augmentative communication and physical therapy devices for patients at the Providence Center for Medically Fragile Children in Portland, Oregon.
Learn in New 'Maker Hub'
Engineering graduates of George Fox are well prepared to develop and implement projects successfully in collaborative, multi-disciplinary teams. Throughout the program, students create, invent and learn together in the Engineering Innovation Center’s “maker hub” – a 6,000-square-foot configurable project-build space. They also work together in high-tech design studios; machine, welding and woodworking shops; the computer design lab; a tool room; an additive manufacturing lab; and in environmental, geotechnical, construction and transportation lab spaces.
In the College of Engineering, Christian professors believe your spiritual development is just as important as your professional growth. Our goal is to help you prepare for a successful career and a purposeful life.
