The undergraduate programs in the ECE Department prepare students for their professional careers as engineers and for further studies--in engineering areas as well as in non-traditional areas, such as medicine, law, or business.
Due to the great diversity of student objectives and the large number of specialties that are available in the ECE technical fields, we offer a flexible curriculum with many choices. Our goal is to help students tailor their studies to their professional aspirations and future plans, while maintaining a good and balanced exposition to all major topics within the discipline.
We offer two accredited degree programs leading to a Bachelor of Science degree:
The Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering programs are accredited by the EAC Accreditation Commission of ABET.
Within each degree program we offer opportunities for individual course selection. For example, a student who is interested in robotics may select courses in control, signal processing and computer hardware, while a student who is interested in nanotechnology may select courses in solid state devices and electrophysics.
Both programs are offered with a one co-op option (4 years, with a single six-month cooperative education cycle) and a three co-op option (5 years, including three six-month cooperative education cycles). Most of our students select the three co-op option.

The department also offers an accelerated degree program: the BS/MS. This option allows advanced students to combine undergraduate and graduate studies and be granted both Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in a period of 5 years.
