Electrical Engineering Professor

Teach university students about electrical engineering.

What does an Electrical Engineering Professor do?

As an Electrical Engineering Professor, you instruct pupils on how to design, improve, and test electrical equipment. Your classes as an Electrical Engineering Professor can cover a broad range of information, from batteries to robots. Because the range is so wide and your students’ skill levels vary so greatly, you’re most likely responsible for only a few classes focusing on a single aspect of electrical engineering.

From theoretical studies in the classroom to design work in the lab, students learn how to manufacture electrical equipment, build a robot from the ground up, create a microchip, and build a supercomputer. Electrical Engineers are vital to many different industries, such as aerospace, auto, architecture and design, software, and just about any industry that produces electricity. Not only do your students need to learn how to create the machines used in these industries, but they also need to know how to fix them and keep them running at peak performance.

As a Professor, you make time to help your students out, even after class time, with the projects you’ve assigned and with other questions they may have. The field of electrical engineering is ever growing and changing, and as a result, the need for your students in the workforce is growing as well, so it’s crucial that you, the Electrical Engineering Professor, prepare them well.
