Mission of the Department:

The mission of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is to achieve and maintain, through a continuous improvement process, excellence in undergraduate and graduate education, research, and service to the community and the nation. We endeavor to accomplish this by providing high-quality education and research programs which will impart the requisite knowledge and skills to our students enabling them to assume leadership roles in contributing to the advancement of the underlying electrical and computer engineering technologies which sustain the current world economy, to promote a strong commitment to life-long learning, to prepare them for a variety of alternative career paths and to participate as responsible citizens in a rapidly changing and shrinking global community.

 

Programs Educational Objectives:

  1. Successful careers in dynamic and multidisciplinary fields with the ability to apply engineering practices within societal, global, and environmental contexts in an ethical manner.

  2. Continuous professional improvement through life-long learning including successful admission and completion of graduate studies of the highest standard.

 

Student Outcomes Attainable by our Programs:

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics

  2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors

  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences

  4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts

  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives

  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions

  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

 

Degree Program

This degree program endeavors to achieve its objectives by imparting to its students the fundamental principles underlying modern computer engineering, along with the necessary skills and experiences to apply standard practices, methodologies and modern tools for solving computer engineering problems.

The computer engineering design sequence is spread throughout the curriculum, culminating in a two semester senior design project.

Graduates are expected to keep pace with this rapidly-evolving discipline. To this end, the faculty stress the importance of continued education and life-long professional development, by trying to instill in the students a sense of excitement for the prospects of this evolving technology, tempered by a strong sense of responsibility and concern for its potential impacts on society.

The Computer Engineering degree program has three options:

  1. Computer Engineering Option
  2. Software Engineering Option
  3. Computer Engineering Pre-Med Option

These options require a common engineering core, which is followed by specialized courses in each area along with elective courses.
