The Midwestern state of Illinois has many educational opportunities for prospective electrical engineers. Overall, there are 35 schools with this program in Illinois. Associate's degrees are available at 29 schools in the state, and you can earn a Bachelor's degree at 14 schools in Illinois. Nine schools have Master's degree programs and eight schools offer PhD programs.

The degree you earn can determine which career path you take, so it's important to evaluate each degree choice. An Associate's degree is a good starting point if you aren't sure whether or not you are ready to commit to a Bachelor's degree. You have to earn 60 credits for an Associate's degree, which takes an average of two years. To earn a Bachelor's degree, you earn 120 credits in courses like Signal and Linear Systems, Digital Signal Processing, and Electric Power Engineering. This takes an average of four years.

After completing your Bachelor's degree, you may choose to continue your schooling to earn a Master's degree or PhD. For a Master's degree, you need to earn 30 credits in advanced courses like Nanophotonics and Integrated Circuits Technology. This takes about two years. To earn a PhD, you have to write and defend a thesis, which takes an average of seven years.

Since there are so many schools in Illinois, there is a wide range of tuition costs. The statewide average cost of tuition is $14,900. No matter what tuition at your school costs, you may be able to save money by applying for scholarships.

The Illinois Society of Professional Engineers awards scholarships of $1000 to students every year. Another source of scholarship money is the Illinois Section of ASCE.

After you have completed your engineering program, the next step is getting your license from the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation. They require you to pass the NCEES Fundamentals of Engineering exam, which is administered every April and October. After you pass this exam, you can apply for and receive your license.
