Electrical Engineering Program Mission

Electronic systems and subsystems (including both hardware and software components) are increasing exponentially in complexity and sophistication each year. The familiar expectation that next year's computer and communications products will be far more powerful than today's is common to all products incorporating electronics. The sophistication of these electronic products may not be seen by the casual user, but they are understood, delivered and advanced by electrical engineers.

The field encompasses areas such as telecommunications, data networks, signal processing, digital systems, embedded computing, intelligent systems, electronics, optoelectronics, solid-state devices and many others. The department's program is designed to provide electrical engineering graduates with the tools and skills necessary to understand and apply today's technologies and to become leaders in developing tomorrow's technologies and applications.

Electrical Engineering Program Objectives

Graduates of the Electrical Engineering program will:

  1. Be recognized as innovative technical experts who demonstrate advanced understanding of the state-of-the-art in electrical engineering, as well as their professional, social, and ethical responsibilities.
  2. Emerge as technical leaders through their own individual contributions and their abilities to work with and influence others.
  3. Function as effective entrepreneurs who nurture new technologies from concept to commercialization.

The bachelor of engineering in electrical engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET. Enrollment and Graduation Data

Computer Engineering Program Mission

Students in the computer engineering program begin by studying the scientific foundations that are the basis for all engineering. Specialized electrical engineering, computer engineering and computer science courses follow, providing depth in the many issues related to computers, data networks, information systems and related topics used in contemporary commercial and industrial applications. Students may direct their interests into areas such as computer and information systems, software/software engineering and computer architectures and digital systems. In addition to computer engineering courses, the student can draw upon electrical engineering and computer science courses to develop the skills appropriate for their career objectives. In the senior year, students have the opportunity to participate in an actual engineering design project which is taken directly from a current industrial or commercial application.
