In-demand skills with impact
We offer top-tier undergraduate programs designed to integrate theory, technology and practice in electrical and computer engineering. Students will gain hands-on training through laboratory experiences, have access to world-class research and collaboration facilities, and work closely with expert faculty thanks to our low student-faculty ratios.
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers three majors and five minors, including a new Cybersecurity Engineering major. Our graduates in these high-demand fields go on to pursue exciting, rewarding and successful careers in private industry, government agencies, nonprofit research centers, university research labs, entrepreneurial ventures or public policy.
