Electrical and Computer Engineering

Prospective Students

The Electrical and Computer Engineering Department (ECE) is accredited with a diverse student body of about 1300 Undergraduate and 60 Graduate students. We have two undergraduate programs Electrical Engineering and and Computer Engineering and one graduate program.

The primary focus of the ECE department is on students who plan to go to work as Engineers right after graduation. The overall goals of the program are to:

  • Help students develop the technical skills needed to be good engineers.
  • Help students develop the communication skills needed to be good written and oral communicators.
  • Help students develop a sense of responsibility as both engineers and members of society.

We endeavor to accomplish these goals with programs having the following three main characteristics:

  • First, the ECE Curriculum is highly structured with Engineering classes beginning in the Freshmen year. This not only gives our students an early start in their engineering studies but also gives them the opportunity to decide at an early stage whether they really want to pursue engineering.
  • Second, classes are taught with a "learning by doing" approach to education. Many Electrical and Computer Engineering class has a Lab taught by a Faculty member that gives students first-hand opportunity to explore the results developed in class as well as test out their own ideas and designs.
  • And third, every student does a Senior Design Project. These capstone projects are in general not only great learning experiences but also great to talk about in job
