The Electrical Engineering Department offers programs leading to the degrees of Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering and a dual degree of Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and Applied Physics.

The Electrical Engineering program emphasizes teaching and research in a diverse group of areas including:

  • Communication and Networking
  • Electronics and VLSI Design
  • Computers and Digital systems
  • Device Fabrication and Nanotechnology
  • Bio Engineering
  • Signal Processing
  • Electric Power Systems
  • Optics and Photonics
  • Control Systems
  • Computer Engineering

The Computer Engineering program promotes teaching and research in a diverse group of areas including:

  • Microprocessors
  • Personal Computers
  • Supercomputers
  • Biomedical Devices
  • Automobile Control Systems
  • Industrial Robotics
  • Circuit Design
  • Embedded Systems
  • Communications
  • Networking

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers two undergraduate degrees:

The department also offers a technical minor in:

Additional degrees related to the department include:


  • Strong foundation in the physical and mathematical sciences through “core” classes
  • Early introduction of engineering design concepts coupled with required laboratories introducing design as a hands-on activity.
  • Freedom to choose electives to tailor programs according to each student’s interests and goals.
  • Freedom to select courses offered by other departments, so that interested students can prepare for activities that straddle department boundaries or for entry into professional schools.
  • A Senior Design Project where students have the opportunity to synthesize and apply their knowledge to solve real world problems.


Each student is expected to complete the baccalaureate degree by attending four consecutive years and eight semesters, maintaining regular progress by carrying the “normal” course load – between 12 and 18 credit hours each semester. They may however wish to accelerate the pace toward graduation using advanced placement credits, summer session study, and receiving credit for courses through examination.
