Temporary Virtual Services

The physical office for the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department is closed until further notice and we will be delivering services via phone or online. If you are a current student and have questions regarding your class, please email your professor directly.

Welcome to your door to the future!

Welcome to your door to the future! A degree in either Computer Engineering or Electrical/Electronic Engineering will prepare you for many great jobs including ones that haven't yet been invented. Our highly qualified faculty and small class size will provide you with an excellent opportunity to get an education that will prepare you for the rest of your professional life. Programs in our department are known for the hands-on experience that students gain while developing a critical understanding of electrical and computer engineering. Our students begin coursework in computer engineering and electrical/electronic engineering in their first year and have a number of technical electives from which to select before they graduate.  As a result, our students are prepared for professional careers in high demand areas, including embedded systems and Internet of Things devices that incorporate microprocessors and field-programmable gate arrays; power systems including alternative energy systems, robotics and control systems, digital and optical communications system design; digital signal and image processing; software engineering; biomedical instrumentation; and analog and mixed-signal design.

EECE Outstanding Student Leader Awardee:  Robert Goldansky

Robert was vice president and president of the CSU, Chico IEEE Student Branch. Membership in the IEEE grew substantially under his leadership. He was a member on the CSU, Chico IEEE Micromouse Team, which came in first place at the UCLA Micromouse Competition in May 2019. Robert also served as the student representative from the EECE Department on the ECC Student Learning Fee Proposal Committee in 2019.

Congratulations to our 2021 inductees to the IEEE-HKN Honor Society! 
Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) is the international honors society under IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) for Electrical and Computer Engineering majors (Computer Science included.) The group focuses on professional development of members and involvement in local community projects. A screenshot from this year's (virtual) induction ceremony can be seen below.

Outstanding IEEE-HKN Chapter Award

Our Iota Zeta Chapter has been selected as an IEEE-HKN Outstanding Chapter for 2019-2020.  This prestigious award is presented to IEEE‐HKN chapters in recognition of excellence in their chapter administration and programs. The EECE Department certainly has valued the contributions that the members of our IEEE-HKN chapter have made.  It is wonderful to see that the national organization has recognized the positive impact that our students have had in the EECE Department and our student community.

Accelerating Hands-On Learning with Portable Instruments  

With the decision to teach all courses online in the 2020-2021 academic year, the EECE Department made the decision to extend the adoption of the portable instruments into almost all of our activity and laboratory courses.  Students in EECE 144 (Fundamentals of Logic Design), EECE 211L (Linear Circuits I Activity), EECE 215 (Practical Circuits and Electronics), EECE 315 (Electronics I), EECE 316 (Electronics II), and EECE 344 (Digital System Design) used the latest tools to collect and analyze data on the performance of their circuits at home. 

These palm-sized instruments are +/- 5 V power supplies, oscilloscopes, arbitrary function generators, and digital logic analyzers in one small package.  (That’s it, circled in yellow!).  Student ran the software needed to operate the instruments on their home computers to collect data, which can then be imported into MATLAB or Excel.  Students will continue to use these instruments in AY 2021-2022, even though our courses will be taught almost entirely in person, because these instruments allow our students to test out their designs at any time/any where.
