Electrical and Computer Engineering
Electrical Engineering Undergraduate Program
Welcome! The mission of the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is to fulfill the needs of the region and state by providing an undergraduate technical education in electrical engineering and computer engineering to a diverse group of students. Additionally, the department strives to continually update its program of study in order to qualify its graduates for positions in industry located in the region and beyond while providing sufficient breadth and depth in its program to assure its graduates a successful practice in the profession. At the same time, students are grounded in the rigorous scientific and theoretical foundations of the discipline, in order to enable graduates to enter and be successful in advanced level educational program of their choosing, but also to be able to build upon this strong foundation and extend it to new depth.
Electrical Engineering Major
The electrical engineering course of study broadly prepares the graduate for professional practice or graduate studies while offering several areas of concentration. Electrical engineers design and develop electronic circuits, equipment and systems in the areas of electromagnetics, communications and control, computers and digital systems, physical electronics and optics, power systems and energy conversion, and control systems.
By the appropriate choice of technical area courses, the student may emphasize the following areas of specialization:
- electronics and communications
- computers and digital systems,
- power and energy conversion and control systems.
A rich set of technical area courses is available to allow students to broaden their knowledge within any of several electrical engineering areas.
