The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers curricula leading to the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (B.S.E.E.) degree and the Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering (B.S.E.C.E.) degree. The curriculum in each degree includes a strong foundation in the electrical, computer, mathematical, and physical sciences. The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (B.S.E.E.) degree has more of an emphasis in the fields related to power, electromagnetics, and control. The Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering (B.S.E.C.E.) degree emphasizes concepts related to electronics and the computer engineering field. The B.S. degree program in electrical engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
The mission of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is to provide a modern, high quality educational experience for all of our students. We provide the knowledge and principles on which electrical engineering and computer engineering are founded in order to graduate engineers who are technically competent, creative, articulate, and socially aware. The primary objective for the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is to prepare graduates to engage successfully in the practice of electrical engineering and/or computer engineering by obtaining employment or admission to graduate school. Interested individuals are invited to visit the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering webpage for current information regarding our objectives.
Based on both the mission statement and the primary objective of the Department, the objectives of the electrical engineering and the electrical and computer engineering programs are to provide graduates with:
- The knowledge to meet employer needs should they choose a professional career; and
- The knowledge to engage in advanced study should they choose to continue their education.
