EE1 Welcome

I warmly welcome you to the web site of Department of Electrical Engineering (EE) at Southern University-Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Since the inception in 1956, the Electrical Engineering Department has prospered by the synergism of dedicated faculty, ambitious students who are the major factors for our success, and other stakeholders in our progress. From the start, we have challenged ourselves to combine our great traditions of friendliness and feel-at-home environment with the exciting new emerging technologies.

 As you go through the pages of this website, we hope to give you some flavor of our efforts in forging this convergence of traditional excellence and modern high-tech education. Electrical Engineering is a dynamic branch of the engineering profession involved in the design of devices that create and control electrical energy. Increasingly, Electrical Engineers are also being called upon to design devices that create and harness photonic energy.

Electrical Engineering Department is housed at P.B.S. Pinchback Building. Our classrooms, which are multimedia equipped facilitate the process of instruction and learning.


Our laboratories and research facilities are constantly being updated in order to remain on the cutting edge of technology. All our faculty members have their terminal degrees, and with an average student/faculty ratio of 16 to 1, affords the professors the opportunity of imparting knowledge to the students in a conducive environment.

A brief overview of the EE department program is presented here to demonstrate our current standing. For more detailed information on our wide-ranging educational and research activities, I invite you to examine the curriculum, laboratory, and faculty descriptions provided on this website.
