Inside the Program

From music to patents, alum finds his career path

A month after graduating with an electrical engineering degree, Geoff Winningham took a job in patent research and consulting.

He never imagined his major in electrical engineering would lead him to a job working with patents, but an internship at WSU Ventures helped guide his career path.


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.


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.
