Work Closely with Faculty in Small Classes
Since a typical LSSU engineering class has about 15 students, you will have the chance to work closely with your instructors, not graduate students, all of whom are full-time teaching faculty members. The small class size also promotes interaction in the lecture and the laboratory with other students and with your instructor.
Recognizing that learning comes through doing as well as listening, all LSSU engineering programs are designed to include a significant amount of engineering practice along the way. The core of electrical engineering curriculum contains 18 engineering courses of which 13 contain a laboratory component. Additionally, most technical elective courses contain laboratory components. Many of these laboratory activities include a capstone project. This means that you will have ample opportunity to learn through experience.
While the emphasis in the electrical engineering curriculum is to provide a solid background in all related areas, it does contain electro-mechanical systems and control systems, two courses not typically found in other university cores courses. Both of these courses are important in providing understand for other areas like robotics, electric vehicles, and automation. Additionally, the electrical engineering curriculum has three concentrations that allow students to tailor their study. These include Sustainable Energy, Digital Systems, and Robotics.
