8 United States Military Academy West Point, NY

At the heart of the U.S. Military Academy’s electrical engineering program is a seemingly simple concept: design-simulate-build-test. But what cadets learn through this process can have major effects on military operations when they become members of the U.S. Army following graduation. While, of course, students receive solid instruction in the fundamentals during their time at USMA, hands-on experience carrying out ideas from start to finish helps them become leaders in the discipline. Top-notch facilities support student efforts. Electrical engineering labs feature state-of-the-art equipment valued in excess of $10 million. On-site fabrication shops employ professional technicians who can provide personalized service to cadets and faculty as they work to bring their ideas to life. The institution even keeps over 1,000 types of electronic items in stock so that students won’t need to waste time waiting for a special part to arrive. Many rising juniors and seniors spend their summer solving real research and engineering problems in Department of Defense labs or at commercial businesses. Some travel abroad to broaden their horizons. Conducting collaborative robotic work with students at Peking University certainly can add both to one’s engineering and cultural knowledge!
