Electrical and Computer engineering encompasses all areas of research, development, design, and operation of electrical and electronic systems and their components, including software. Emphasis in such varied areas as bioengineering, circuit theory, communication sciences, computers and automata, control systems, electromagnetic fields, energy sources and systems, and materials and electronic devices is available. Two degree programs are offered by the School: Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) and Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering (BSCmpE). Engineers in both programs must have a strong background in mathematics and physics, a broad base in the humanities, and a command of the English language to provide the breadth essential for optimum professional growth.
Graduates from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering are sought by all major industries. Electrical engineers hold many unusual and challenging positions in the aerospace, chemical, nuclear, automotive, medical, metallurgical, textile, railway, petroleum, and other basically nonelectrical industries, as well as in computers, electronics, communications, power, and other electrical industries. Their activities span industrial activity, research, development, design, production, marketing, operation, field test, and maintenance of many types of equipment for government, industry, farm, and home.
