Electrical & Computer Engineering

The Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) Department faculty conducts research in systems and energy, communications and signal/image processing, biomedical engineering, microelectronics, photonics and optoelectronics, electromagnetics, nanotechnology, VLSI, computer engineering, and security.

The ECE Department provides educational programs in bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral levels. These programs are of high quality and sufficient breadth and depth to serve industry, government, and academic institutions of our State and Nation. We strive to meet the demands of the information age and to share expertise, knowledge, and experience of our faculty with industry and government agencies.

The Master of Engineering in the department of Electrical & Computer Engineering enables students to provide technical contributions to design, development, and manufacturing in their practice of electrical and systems engineering; in addition to, professional development which enhances their career aspirations. The program requirements are:
