About the Undergraduate Programs

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. An eight-semester sequence of courses that is designed to develop the concepts and design and analysis techniques fundamental to the various areas of specializations forms the core of the curricula. 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.

Accreditation: The Electrical and Computer Engineering programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
