Electrical & Computer Engineering - Facilities & Resources

You’ll have plenty of opportunities to put your classroom lessons to the test in our electrical and computer engineering laboratories and with student project or competition teams in the Branam Innovation Center. You’ll also be using industry-standard software.

Laboratories

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering has a long and distinguished tradition of emphasizing hands-on learning with individual attention. Rigorous laboratory experiences have been designed to help you discover and understand the laws, principles, and concepts of science, engineering, and mathematics.

We have nine different instructional laboratories. And we also use "lab in a box" systems such as the Digilent Nexyx 3 FPGA board, the Digilent Electronics Explorer board, and National Instruments MyDAQ board, which can connect to a laptop, allowing labs to be done anywhere.

Majors & Minors

We offer multiple options for entering freshmen that will prepare you for a wide range of careers in industry or government, or for further study. You can major in Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering and choose an area of concentration, such as Communications Systems or Energy Production. Students from other engineering disciplines may also earn an ECE area minor.
