Electrical Engineering Welcome

Chair's Welcome


I warmly welcome you to the website of the Department of Electrical Engineering (EE) at Southern University in 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 a feel-at-home environment with the exciting new emerging technologies.

As you go through the pages of this website, we hope to give you an idea of our effort 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 and photonic energy. Increasingly, electrical engineers are also being called upon to design 'smart' devices or systems by incorporating microprocessors that can be programmed to perform specific functions.
