Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering
Message from the Chairs
The primary objective of the electrical and computer engineering curriculum is to produce well-rounded graduates with skills consistent with the requirements of today’s engineering environment and with a broad range of aptitudes and interests that will lead to successful careers in industry, government, or the pursuit of further graduate studies. The program, accredited by the Accrediting Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), meets the requirements for both electrical engineering as well as computer engineering.
The program features courses in engineering science and engineering design, with lecture classes supplemented by laboratory work in our up-to-date facilities. The laboratory provides practical experience and will enable you to verify the principles and theories presented in the classroom. Our program responds to the growing need for engineers who have computer hardware and software skills, and will give you a competitive advantage as you pursue employment in the job market.
Demand for our program graduates are currently at an all-time high, with many finding employment in the design, development production, testing, and sales of electrical/computer systems in various industries, including power, utilities, and telecommunications, as well as work in the service sector and with federal agencies. Our faculty members combine doctorates in electrical and computer-related areas with industrial and research experience, to bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise in design, development, and implementation to the classrooms.
