Enhance Lives by Harnessing Nature’s Power
From mobile devices to microwaves, and engines to antennas, electrical engineers plan, design, and control components found in myriad products and inventions, as well as entire power systems. PCC’s electrical engineering concentration lays the scientific and mathematical foundation needed to understand God’s natural laws and harness them to benefit mankind.
College-level engineering study requires a good understanding of physical sciences, highly developed aptitude in mathematics, and competence to read rapidly with comprehension. PCC’s program helps students strengthen skills in these disciplines while emphasizing fundamental scientific and mathematical laws. Through practical application in engineering labs, students learn to harness, control, and direct nature’s electrical forces to achieve and measure goals.
In the senior year, students apply their learning and training in a capstone project, in which they design, plan, build, and test subsystems using current design methods and electronic design automation tools.
Students completing PCC’s electrical concentration can pursue a career in various fields and industries or choose to further their knowledge in graduate studies.
The purpose of the electrical concentration is to promote the cause of Christ by providing engineering education in a Christian and traditional, liberal-arts setting to develop undergraduates who are biblical in their philosophical worldview, Christlike in their character, and exemplary in their practice of electrical engineering.

Additional Learning Outcomes
Graduates of the electrical concentration will also demonstrate the following outcomes:
- Analysis—analyze electrical and electronic devices, circuits, and systems;
- Design-Integrate—perform detailed design of electrical, electronic, and digital devices and systems containing hardware and software components; and
- Stochastic Analysis—apply probability and statistics to analyze electrical and electronic components, signals, or systems.

I have discovered that PCC is a unique place where I could develop my knowledge as an electrical engineer, my skills as a professional, and my spiritual walk with God. However, these qualities cannot be passively gained—sincere effort must be applied in order to succeed. The most important thing I learned was how to learn. Thanks to the dedicated faculty, I was pushed to do my best.
