The Electrical Engineering Program trains professionals with high technical skills whose work ranges from projects and domestic installations to the development of power generation and telecommunication systems.

In the first two years, students take courses in Mathematics, Physics and Electrical Engineering foundations –  including Calculus, Physics, Electricity and Technical Drawing, as well as career-oriented courses, such as Microprocessors, Digital Systems and Mechanics.

From the eighth semester, students are apt to choose their areas of concentration, according to their interests and the labor market needs. The program covers six areas, from which students must choose at least four: Power Systems, Electronics, Power Electronics and Drives, Telecommunication, Signal Processing and Control, and Business Management.

A particularity of the Electrical Engineering Program is the role of the faculty advisor, a professor who will assist the student throughout the entire program in issues related to curriculum, areas of concentration, elective courses, and on the ideal time to engage in a project or an internship.

Students also have at their disposal ten teaching laboratories with up-to-date equipments for a high-quality training. UFSC’s Laboratory of Electromagnetism and Electromagnetic Compatibility is one of the few existing in Brazil.

Electrical Engineering graduates can work in the design of domestic, commercial and industrial electrical installations; design and development of electrical machines; electric drives; industrial electronics; telecommunication; electronics (integrated circuit, signal processing); power generation, transmission and distribution; business management and control systems; among other fields.
