A couple a thoughts - you'll find that after graduation expenses will be higher than you may currently forecast - be sure the funds that you are thinking of investing will not be needed. One of the worst things that can happen in a bear market is to be in a position where you have to sell some or all of your investments. Be a bit on the cautious side.
However, if you have the funds to set aside, there are few investments which would be out of bounds for a young investor with many years ahead. A high growth, high risk portfolio would be OK since you have a long time to allow the investment to give returns. I would suggest you take some time to look into how the markets work - who makes money and how and why in the different markets. Being aware of the financial end of the electrical engineering business will benefit you inways beyond investing -

Hope the job market looks good and doesn't go south on you.
