The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Engineering and a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering and a new Integrated BS/MS in Electrical and Computer Engineering.
Individuals enrolling in these degree programs are given an opportunity to develop a strong background in the engineering sciences and to learn the analysis, design, and synthesis tools necessary to function well as active participants in many traditional, new, and emerging areas of technology.
The Cooperative Education in Engineering Program formally integrates students' University studies with institutionally supervised work experiences at cooperating organizations. The majority of students receive engineering-related experience during pursuit of their bachelor's degree. The ECE department continues to be recognized locally and nationally for the quality of its undergraduate program. As a result, ECE graduates continue to find high-paying jobs or are accepted into graduate schools nationwide.
To meet the program objectives, the curriculum for the Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering and the curriculum for the Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Engineering are organized into a flexible 126-semester-credit-hour structure that provides high-quality education in the fundamentals of engineering, in addition to a thorough coverage of the major specialties within electrical engineering and computer engineering.
For electrical engineering students, a selection of technical electives is provided to allow in-depth concentration in selected areas such as: Communications; Computer Engineering; Digital Signal Processing (DSP); Electronic Materials and Devices; Systems and Control; and Electric Power Engineering.
For students seeking the Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Engineering, the selection of technical electives are from different areas within computer engineering such as: digital system design, computer architecture, VLSI design, engineering programming languages and embedded systems.
Highly qualified faculty work in concert to provide and to evolve a curriculum that is challenging to students, with depth in engineering science, design orientation, and modern laboratory experience. The curriculum objectives are accomplished via a three-tiered curriculum structure comprised of the lower-division core (the first two years), the upper-division core (concentrated primarily in the third year), and the senior-level electives, which are briefly described on our Program Overview page.
