The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers one of the most versatile pathways to the work world. A great diversity of student objectives and specialties is supported by a progressive, flexible curriculum developed by our faculty to cover all options. Traditional ECE areas include circuits and electronics, telecommunications, power, and controls. Today, ECE students also work in audio, optics, robotics, biomedical, and nanotechnology; they work on robotics, self-driving cars, Internet of Things, nanotechnology, cybersecurity, computer chips, and renewable energy technologies.
ECE offers two accredited degree programs: Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering. ECE students maintain a strong exposure to all topics within the discipline while tailoring goals to specific professional goals. Our power engineering program is ranked one of the best in the country. With four new courses, the cybersecurity program is expanding to meet the significant demand for new employees in the field. Many ECE students carry minors in management or business.
A BS/MS program is available to qualified students. ECE offers MS and PhD tracks.
The Computer Engineering and Electrical Engineering degree programs are individually accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
