Electrical and Computer Engineering

The Electrical and Computer Engineering department administers the Bachelor of Science degree program in Electrical Engineering that is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), as well as a graduate program granting the Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering. The undergraduate electrical engineering program also offers a computer engineering option.

These programs support the mission of the University by providing students with appropriate curricula and educational experiences.

For the first year of study, all our engineering programs place major emphasis on the fundamentals of engineering and computer science, mathematics, and the basic sciences to provide the background for later engineering science and design courses. Following preparatory work, the fundamentals of electrical, computer, mechanical, and materials engineering concepts are developed. Advanced courses in electrical and computer engineering further develop knowledge in these engineering disciplines. Students may specialize in a specific area of interest to them, and in accord with their specific career objectives, by taking elective courses that provide depth in that area.
