Our undergraduate program prepares students by teaching the fundamentals of circuits and systems, electromagnetics, microelectronics, signals and communications, computer architecture, and digital systems.
Our students then join faculty members or industry partners in research that spans a range of interests and applications. Students looking to get a head start on their career can visit our job board to view internships and employment opportunities.
Undergraduate Program Mission Statement
Our mission is to provide our students with the knowledge and skills that will enable them to build productive careers in the field of electrical and computer engineering. Our students will learn the principles and practices of fundamental and applied electrical and computer engineering. We will train them to identify and solve problems systematically, to think creatively, and to recognize the role of engineering in modern society.
The educational objective of the undergraduate program in electrical and computer engineering (ECE) is to develop engineering professionals who have:
The intellectual breadth and critical reasoning skills to enable them to successfully pursue diverse career paths, both within the engineering profession and in other areas, such as law, medicine, and business
The ability to communicate effectively both within the technical community and with the public at large.
The skills to work productively in collaborative environments
Appreciation of the social impacts of engineering and the need to maintain the highest ethical standards in the practice of their chosen profession.
Enthusiasm for creativity, research, and lifelong inquiry
Outcome 1: An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
Outcome 2: An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
Outcome 3: an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
Outcome 4: an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
Outcome 5: an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
Outcome 6: An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
Outcome 7: an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
