The Electrical and Computer Engineering Department offers a degree in Electrical Engineering with the option of two programs of study: Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering. Both programs are accredited by ABET and have a common two year basic sequence for freshman and sophomore level students to focus on the fundamentals of both electrical and computer engineering. In the junior year students will select two areas of specialization based on their interests and career goals. An award-winning advising staff is here to help students navigate the curriculum and select faculty advisors to help them shape a personalized curriculum that supports their goals.
