Career Outcomes

The electrical engineering program The University of Scranton is known for educating top electrical engineers—almost all of our seniors secure jobs before graduation, oftentimes with companies where they interned for throughout their undergraduate years. Many of our students also choose to continue their education full or part-time in top graduate programs across the country.

“Organizations prefer to work with our graduates compared to other schools, because of their ability to interface with clients. They represent a different approach, a different entity; they can communicate, they can write. They're not afraid to do that.”

Professor Andrew Berger, Ph.D., Chair of Physics & Engineering Department
