The Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering houses three academic programs- Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Electronics Engineering Technology.

Computer Engineering is the branch of engineering that integrates the fields of electrical engineering and computer science.  Computer engineers use computer hardware and software to solve engineering problems. They are trained in computer architecture, embedded systems, software design, data structures, hardware interfacing, and hardware/software integration.  The Computer Engineering program offers courses in basic circuitry, microelectronics, embedded systems, algorithms, data structures, and signal processing. An internship, which gives students engineering work experience, is also part of the program. In the senior year, students complete a two-semester capstone project that integrates their course work. The program prepares graduates to enter engineering industry or pursue advanced studies in the discipline.

Electrical Engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with the design and development of electronic devices and systems such as computers, telecommunications and controls. The Electrical Engineering Program offers courses in basic analog and digital circuits, microelectronic systems, electromagnetics, embedded systems, and signal processing. An internship, which gives students engineering work experience, is also part of the program. In the senior year, students complete a two-semester capstone project that integrates their course work. The program prepares graduates to enter engineering industry or pursue advanced studies in the discipline.

Electronics Engineering Technology provides an applications-oriented education and prepares graduates to make significant contributions in technology-based career fields. The program prepares students to incorporate computer and electronic systems in solving engineering, technology, science, and manufacturing problems.

The Electrical & Computer Engineering Department offers both Bachelor of Science (BS) and Master of Science (MS) degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering. The department also offers an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) and Bachelor of Science degrees in Electronics Engineering Technology along with a minor.
