Program Information

  • Overview

    The world of electrical and computer engineering is an ever-changing one. The advances over a new graduate’s working career of approximately 40 years will be phenomenal with applied undergraduate engineering courses slowly becoming obsolete. The most useful knowledge obtained from the undergraduate courses are the mathematics, engineering science and humanities courses, plus the acquired ability to attack and solve new problems in a forthright manner. Graduate school is the next step in a lifetime of learning for both new graduates and for those who have been out a few years and recognize the need for more education.

    1. Undergraduate Programs and Curriculum

      The undergraduate Electrical Engineering program is designed to guide the student to achieve technical competency and effective communication and leadership skills on projects, multi-disciplinary teams and society. The aim is to assure a sound preparation for adaptation in exciting and rapidly-changing areas of technology and the passion for lifelong learning. A part of this preparation is learning how to respond to ethical and public issues, including safety and social and environmental concerns.

    2. The Graduate Programs and Curriculum

      The graduate programs and curriculum in ECE are designed to provide advanced studies for the graduate engineer who wishes to continue preparation for effective participation in the professions of electrical, software and systems engineering. The program also provides continuing education in advanced subjects for the working engineer who acknowledges the need to stay abreast of the rapidly changing technological world. Emphasis is placed on the development of the engineer’s capacity for independent study and continued professional growth.
