Electrical and Computer Engineering Department
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) strives to provide a balanced education in understanding theory, developing laboratory skills, researching current problems and novel applications, and implementing commercially viable products. To do so, the ECE curriculum integrates close faculty interaction with a solid stem of theory and intense laboratory courses starting with four ECE courses during the freshman year and culminating with a three-semester capstone design project. Design projects are offered in every semester of the program with topics drawn from controls, communications, embedded computer systems, energy conversions, robotics, signal processing, and wireless systems. The ECE Department allows students to select a professional elective stem that broadens the student's future career path into a well-prepared engineer, researcher, inventor, or entrepreneur who is ready to contribute to society.
