Electrical and Computer Engineering

Welcome to EECE and the Latest News

Welcome to your door to the future!

Welcome to your door to the future! A degree in either Computer Engineering Program or Electrical/Electronic Engineering Program 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.

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  

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.  These instruments allow our students to test out their designs at any time/any where.
