The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering hosts two undergraduate programs and one graduate program. Our Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering degree was started in the Fall of 1983, with our Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering and Master of Science in Electrical Engineering degrees started in the Fall of 2001. The master of science program is currently suspended and not accepting new applicants.
The programs emphasize analog and digital electronics, embedded microprocessor systems, signals and systems, computer architecture, computer software, communication systems, control systems, integrated circuit design and applications, and computer aided design. The cours work is designed to provide students with skills needed to work in engineering, research, and development positions in high technology industries. In addition, students have opportunities to participate in industry sponsored projects. The program also serves as preparation for graduate study in electrical engineering, computer engineering and computer science.
The programs are housed on the first and second floors of the Engineering and Computing Center (ECC). The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering has nine faculty members and three staff members who support the department's programs. Additional engineering science faculty are found in the departments of Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering, Physics, Astronomy, and Engineering Science.
There are seven labs equipped with state-of- the-art equipment, which are open to all ECE students daily from 8 AM until 5 PM (major students until 1 AM). There are approximately 85 admitted majors in Electrical Engineering (juniors and seniors).
The Bachelor of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering and The Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Engineering are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012 - telephone: (410) 347-7700.
The main office of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is located on the second floor of the Engineering and Computing Center in room 211.
