Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Electrical engineering and computer engineering are professions concerned with systems that generate, transmit, process and measure information. Advanced technology pervades our lives in areas such as communications, electronics and computers.
Electrical engineers design, develop and implement electrical hardware and software that are used in electrical devices, control systems, electrical machines and communications systems. Electrical engineers have contributed in the design of many devices we use daily such as cell phones, microwave ovens, radars, TVs and laptops.
Computer engineers design, develop and implement computer technologies for a variety of industrial consumer, commercial, military and medical applications. Computer engineers are equipped with knowledge and skills in all aspects of computer hardware and software. They use these skills to make hardware and software tradeoffs for the optimum computer system integration and design.
