Inside the Program

Collaborative project helps local kids with disabilities

As an engineering student, you have the opportunity to work hands-on in your industry while also making a difference in children’s lives through GoBabyGo! 

The collaborative program involves engineering and physical therapy students who modify off-the-shelf toy ride-on cars for children with disabilities. 

“It allows me to engage my mind. In the end you’ve done something to help someone less-fortunate than yourself,” said computer engineering major Brandon Nece.

Curriculum

You'll start by developing a solid background in math, science and general engineering—and you'll be involved in design throughout the program. As a senior, you'll work on a two-semester project, giving you real-world experience and preparing you for a professional career or for an advanced engineering degree. There are three options to complete the MSECE degree: thesis, project or coursework. 

Careers

WSU's vast industry connections—and experience-based learning for every major—gives electrical engineering students the chance to grow their professional network, build a resume and earn a paycheck, all while still in school, leading to dream careers in many fields from IT and manufacturing to telecommunications and aerospace.
