    1. Electrical Engineeringat UNO Dr. Edit Kaminsky Bourgeois Associate Professor Department of Electrical Engineering 2008/2009

    2. College of Engineering • EE is one of 4 Departments: • Electrical Engineering • Civil Engineering (also environmental grad) • Mechanical Engineering • Naval architecture and marine engineering • Programs: • BS • MS engineering • MS environmental engineering • MS engineering management • Ph.D. in Engineering and applied sciences EE at UNO

    3. EE at UNO • 4 years for BS (ABET) • 1-2 for MS • 4-7 PhD • Concentrations in • Computer Engineering • Electrical Engineering (communications and Machinery options • 4-year curriculum • Evening and day courses • Cost • ~ $1500/semester for Full time UG (residents) + fees • Scholarships and grants available The Princeton Review praised UNO for its strong Academics, rating UNO 70 out of more than 3000 USA Universities. EE at UNO

    4. Electrical Engineering • The field of electrical and computer engineering is primarily involved with the tasks of generation, transmission, processing, and storage of information or electric power (signals). The underlying factor is the use of electricity or electromagnetic waves (such as light) and sound. EE at UNO

    5. Electrical Engineering What EEs do: Design Research Development Implementation Testing • Broad field, fun, difficult • Areas • Computer engineering • Power • Controls • Communications • Signal processing • Artificial Intelligence • Electronics and Devices • Many more EE at UNO

    6. Job Types and examples • Consulting (MS Benbow) • Utilities • Power generation, transmission, distribution (Entergy) • Telecommunications (Bellsouth, Cox, Verizon) • Oil industry, petrochemicals • Controls (Johnsons Controls) • Instrumentation (Shell) • Process engineering (Input-Output) • Education and Training (UNO, ITT) • Research and development (NRL, NASA, DOD) • Specialized Industries • Chip manufacturing (Motorola) • Modem development (Qualcomm) • Computer design (Dell) • Networking (Cisco Systems) • Signal processing (Texas Instruments) EE at UNO

    7. Job Benefits • EE among top engineering salaries • Starting: ~ $60 K • Medium: ~ $85 K • High level: over $100 K • Market: • Always a demand for EEs • Ups and down with economy • Ups and down with areas • Job security • High: government (e.g. DoD, DoE, research labs, teaching) • Medim: utilities, consulting • Lower: new technologies, small companies EE at UNO

    8. Requirements - Suggestions • Must like/be good at • Mathematics • Physics, chemistry, other sciences • Computer use/programming • Communication skills • Innovative and curious • “playing with” or “building” EE at UNO
