You can enhance your ECE major with a focused study in a specific subject area. Students not taking a first or second major in Electrical or Computer Engineering may earn an ECE minor. The requirements for vary by discipline. See the course catalog for details.
Requirements for Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering
An electrical engineering degree will prepare you for a career designing, developing, and testing electrical systems in a wide variety of industries.
- 126 Required Credits
- 68 Elective Credits
Requirements for Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering
A computer engineering degree will prepare you to develop data communications and processing infrastructure in a variety of industries.
- 130 Required Credits
- 64 Elective Credits
Electrical engineers work in a variety of industries designing and developing electrical equipment for automotive, defense, and communications applications, among others. An electrical engineer may help design the latest safety features for cars or develop wind, solar, or traditional energy systems.
Network architects design and build data communication networks. They may be responsible for smaller networks between offices to a cloud infrastructure that serves multiple customers.
Control system integration engineers develop ways of integrating multiple control systems, such as in an automobile, into an overall project. They will work closely with other engineers to develop electrical systemsto meet top-level function requirements.
Engineering design and teamwork are an integral part of our programs. You’ll take engineering design courses beginning your freshman year, and tackle a real-world, industry-sponsored project as part of a senior design project team.
