The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering provides instruction and research in areas of electrical and computer engineering such as power systems, optoelectronics, digital systems, VLSI design, data communications and networking, automatic control systems, electronics, embedded systems, microelectronics, power electronics, robotics, nanotechnology, and biomedical engineering.
The Department offers a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (B.S.E.E.) degree and a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering (B.S.Cp.E.) degree. Each degree program requires an eight-semester sequence of courses that is designed to develop the concepts and design and analysis techniques fundamental to the corresponding area of specializations. Emphasis is placed on the utilization of computers throughout the curricula. Our graduates have a wide range of job opportunities as power engineers, communication engineers, digital design engineers, test engineers, embedded system developers, network engineers, control engineers, project engineers, robotic system engineers, optoelectronic engineers, application engineers, analog engineers, medical product engineers, and process engineers.
Computer Engineering embodies the science and technology of design, construction, implementation, and maintenance of software and hardware components of modern computer systems and computer-controlled equipment. Sub-specialties include microprocessor design, hardware-software integration, circuit design and the incorporation of computers into larger engineering systems. Students pursuing the Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering may choose to add a concentration in Machine Learning.
Electrical Engineering is the study and applications of electronics, electricity, and processing of electrical signals. Sub-specialties include electronic devices, electrical circuits, communication systems, control systems, signal and image processing, power electronics and systems, and energy systems.
Students pursuing the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering may choose to add a concentration in Machine Learning or a contentration in Power and Energy Systems. Admission and Progression Requirements and all Program Requirements can be found in the Undergraduate Catalog. Please see the information below:
