Students in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department invent and design the high tech devices, mathematical algorithms and communications networks used by our society. The department offers degree programs in electrical engineering and computer engineering for students in the School of Engineering. The electrical engineer applies concepts from physics and mathematics to create useful electrical devices and systems. Some examples of engineered electrical systems include communications systems, power generation, integrated circuits and electronics, fiber optic data transmission, medical image processing, and radar. The computer engineer designs devices and systems for the management of information in digital form, such as audio and video systems, microprocessor control systems, digital communications, and computer networks. Because software is as crucial to robust design as hardware, the computer engineer is also a knowledgeable programmer. In both required and elective courses throughout the electrical engineering curriculum, the digital computer is used extensively in the study of electrical systems, components, and materials. Students wishing to investigate more intensively the analysis and design of digital computers, as well as the analysis, design, and operation of systems in which computers are an integral part, may follow the computer engineering program. This degree is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. Of the thirty-eight course credits required for the professional degrees accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, a minimum of 9.5 course credits must be completed in college level math and basic science subjects appropriate to the discipline and a minimum of 14.5 course credits must be completed in engineering topics, consistent with ABET general and program criteria.
