Serving Society

Providing an electrical and computer engineering education to society’s future leaders, innovators, and engineers.


The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering provides students with the skills to apply scientific and mathematical principles to the design and analysis of all hardware, software, and systems that process, communicate, interface, and display information.

As a student in computer engineering you will learn the principles of electricity, signals and systems, and technologies used in making digital devices such as cell phones, digital audio players, digital video recorders, alarm systems, x-ray machines, laser surgical tools and more.

Electrical engineering covers a wide range of modern engineering fields including wireless communication, system on chip, nanotechnology, renewable energy, and sensor networks.

An electrical and computer engineering education provides opportunities for solving problems of great social significance and for increasing people’s quality of life.
