Engineering - Electrical Engineering


Ever since Ben Franklin tied a key to a kite, electrical engineers have been searching for innovative ways to use electricity to make the world a better place in which to live.  Today’s electrical engineer may work on projects that range from developing monitors for heart patients to designing computer systems that improve car safety and efficiency.

An engineer’s job is to solve problems, and your engineering education at Vincennes University will help you develop sound problem-solving techniques. Your lab classes, in which you will design, build, and test electronic circuits, will enable you to verify and understand ideas presented in lectures.

In the lab you will work with the basic building blocks used in computer and communication systems.  In addition, you will learn to use computer-aided engineering software to design and simulate digital and analog circuits.

The VU Advantage
Vincennes University offers the first two years of a bachelor’s degree in agricultural, biomedical, chemical, civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering.  All programs are designed to transfer to Purdue University and require high-level mathematics proficiency.  Advantages to beginning your studies at VU include:

  • Hands-on experience.
  • Nurturing of your fundamental skills, designed to prepare you for advanced study.
  • The use of laboratory equipment normally reserved for students at the junior or senior level.
  • Access to mainframe and personal computers, plus computer-aided design systems.
  • The fact that customarily, lab sections are taught by the same faculty who teach the lecture sections, ensuring consistent instruction and encouraging relationship building with professors.

At Vincennes University, fundamental engineering skills are nurtured to prepare you for advanced study.  It’s this personalized attention that can make the difference in your academic success.
