Online BS Option
ECE has an online BS option for transfer students and is working toward providing all electrical and computer engineering courses online.
Though students interested in electrical engineering tend to focus on power systems, signal processing and telecommunications, while computer engineering students concentrate on the design of software, computer chips and robotics, for example, the two areas are well integrated.
Four-Year Degree Plans
The College of Engineering's four-year degree plans provide the advised sequence of courses for a BS in electrical and computer engineering.
ECE course flow charts, available as PDFs, help students plan around their particular interests.
