Electrical Engineering


Program Highlights

Electrical Engineering (EE) has changed the way people around the world lead their daily lives. A student in this discipline studies the design of a wide range of electrical and electronic devices facilitating improved living for people around the world. Electrical Engineering covers a broad field of study including areas like control systems, computer systems, networks, telecommunications devices, and power systems. Therefore, an electrical engineer will study and learn the fundamentals of designing an extensive array of devices in a far-reaching spectrum of applications.

Students enrolled in our EE program can expect to learn concepts through experiential learning and will conduct experiments in several laboratories designed to strengthen theoretical knowledge acquired in regular courses. While we provide opportunities typical of large universities, students experience a small campus feel. Students here are known by their names, and our staff strives to meet students’ individual needs. Our small class sizes encourage interaction among students and faculty.

The Electrical Engineering program offers an ABET-accredited degree at A&M Texarkana. The degree allows students to explore diverse topics of the most sophisticated systems ever built. Electrical Engineers are designers who create designs and components that we use in everyday life, from cell phones, microchips, and smartwatches to the electric power grid and satellite communications.

Featured Courses


EE 308 - Programmable Logic Controllers

Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) types and hardware components, conversion of hard-wired ladder logic to PLC programs, field devices, best practices for PLC systems, and PLC programming including latches, timers, counters, program control, and comparison instructions. Prerequisite

EE 325 - Signals and Systems

This course is one of the fundamental courses of Electrical Engineering, providing theoretical concepts and mathematical tools used for the design and analysis of continuous-time linear systems, as well as analog signals. Topics covered in this course include linear convolution, impulse response, Fourier series, Fourier transforms, and Laplace transform.

EE 335 - Electronics I

This course covers the basics of electronic circuit design techniques as well as the operation of bipolar junction and field-effect transistors. The knowledge acquired in this course will provide students with a sufficient depth of understanding to deal with circuit design problems and to be able to understand the operation of new devices as they become available.

EE 345 - Introduction to Electromagnetic Theory.

This is an introductory course in engineering electromagnetics. Emphasis is placed on time-varying topics, such as transmission lines, Maxwell's equations, and plane and guided waves. The basic concepts of electromagnetic fields, including field vectors, and potentials will be covered.

What You Will Learn

In our electrical engineering program, you will be introduced to the fundamentals and advanced concepts of electrical engineering through hands-on, fast-paced coursework and collaboration with peers and established faculty. You will be prepared for a career in diverse areas of electrical engineering, including manufacturing facilities, technology companies, national laboratories, public utility companies, and governmental and private engineering institutions.

Career & Internship Opportunities

Although not required, internships can significantly enhance students’ learning experiences. An internship course may substitute for an elective course in the electrical engineering degree plan. Below are the guidelines for the internship course.

  • Students must present a job offer or equivalent indicating a brief job description, start/end date, salary, and position title.
  • Prerequisite(s): Junior or senior standing 
  • Supervised fieldwork in a job directly related to engineering.
  • The total minimum duration of the internshipin any semester must be 200 hours. ( this is equivalent to 20 hours a week for ten weeks)
  • Internships must be paid
