The expanding roles of electrical engineers, computer engineers, and computer scientists in today’s society reflect the variety and scope of these exciting professions. In recognition of the distinct qualifications required of engineers and scientists entering these fields, the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department offers undergraduate programs in the following five areas: an electrical engineering program leading to a Bachelor of Science in Engineering (Electrical Engineering) – B.S.E. (E.E.); a computer engineering program leading to a Bachelor of Science in Engineering (Computer Engineering) – B.S.E. (C.E.); a computer science program leading to a Bachelor of Science in Engineering (Computer Science) – B.S.E. (C.S.) offered through the College of Engineering; a data science program leading to a Bachelor of Science in Engineering (Data Science) – B.S.E (D.S.); or a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree offered through the College of LS&A. (Please consult the LS&A Bulletin for information about completing a computer science or data science degree through LS&A. LS&A also offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Data Science through the Department of Statistics.)
Throughout each program, students work with modern laboratory equipment and computer systems, and they are exposed to the most recent analytical techniques and technological developments in their field. Students have many opportunities to associate with outstanding faculty, most of whom are actively engaged in research and/or professional consulting. Such interaction serves to acquaint students with the opportunities and rewards available to practicing electrical or computer engineers and scientists. Our students are encouraged to seek an advanced degree if further specialization and a higher degree of competence in a particular area is desired.
