The Electrical and Computer Engineering curricula produce well-educated graduates prepared to practice engineering at a professional level in an era of rapid and challenging technological development.
  • The educational objectives of the Electrical Engineering curriculum include providing a foundation in seven fundamental areas of electrical engineering (circuits and systems, electromagnetics, electronics, digital systems, communications and signal processing, control systems, and power engineering), giving our graduates the technical proficiency needed for the professional practice of electrical engineering. The educational objectives of the Computer Engineering curriculum include providing a foundation in both electrical engineering (circuits and systems, electronics, and digital systems) and computer science, giving our graduates the technical proficiency needed for the professional practice of computer engineering, including the design and application of computer components and systems. The educational objectives of the Wireless Engineering curriculum include providing a foundation in electrical engineering (circuits and systems, electromagnetics, electronics, digital systems, communications and signal processing), with an emphasis on communication networks to give our graduates the technical proficiency needed for the professional practice of engineering in the wireless industry. Graduates of this program will be able to analyze, develop, design, test, administer and support wireless network systems, communication devices, and other components used in wireless computer and telecommunication networks. All three curricula develop within our graduates the ability to communicate their ideas effectively to technical and non-technical audiences, work effectively in multidisciplinary teams, take their places in society as responsible citizens, and instill within them an appreciation of and enthusiasm for lifelong scientific inquiry, learning and creativity.
  • The goal of the professional portion of each curriculum is to emphasize basic areas of study while providing the flexibility to accommodate a diversity of interests and talents. To this end, each curriculum emphasizes knowledgeable use of digital computer systems, oral and written communication skills, the importance of business, economic, social and global forces on engineering, appreciation of the need to maintain the highest ethical standards, and the maintenance of professional competence through continued self-improvement after graduation. Each curriculum emphasizes engineering design and hands-on laboratory experience, culminating in a capstone design project. The senior year elective structure provides students with the flexibility to pursue a range of career options
