ECE Undergraduate Programs
Students enrolled in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) are offered a choice of two Bachelor of Science degrees. Curricula are designed to give a thorough understanding of the physical principals, the design process and the current technology in the student's chosen discipline.
Electrical engineering (EE) conventionally specializes in communications, electric power systems, microwave and rf systems, solid state electronic devices and electronics. Computer engineering (CpE) specialties include instrumentation and control systems, digital signal and image processing, and advanced computer architecture. Students are offered professional courses intended to broaden the understanding of the non-technical considerations of a successful engineering design. The objective of the programs is to prepare the student to make valuable job contributions immediately upon graduation.
Electrical and Computer Engineering professions have many facets. An extremely wide range of interesting and satisfying careers is presented to the well-qualified graduate. Some of the fields opened by this background lead to research, management , sales, and manufacturing development. Technical areas include the design, manufacture and utilization of computers, power systems, communications, automatic control systems, electronics, semiconductor devices, quantum electronics, microwave systems, instrumentation, digital signal and image processing, system instrumentation and biomedical electronics.
Excellent facilities are available for advanced studies in digital systems, power systems, digital signal processing, communication, opto-electronics and solid state electronics. The School operates and maintains a variety of computers, a microprocessor lab, a power systems simulator lab, a digital signal processing lab and other instructional and research laboratories. The facilities are used to provide "hands-on" experience for students. The Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering undergraduate programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET www.abet.org).
