Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department
offers BS and MS degrees in Electrical Engineering
and a BS degree in Computer Engineering. Each of these
degrees will prepare students for a wide range of
careers in industry and government while also preparing
them for further study in engineering, business, medicine,
Our faculty use innovative
teaching techniques to provide an exciting educational
experience rich in hands-on laboratory content and
team-oriented design projects.
encompasses a broad array of areas including signal
processing, communication systems, electronics, integrated
circuits, digital systems, controls, power engineering,
and electromagnetics. An electrical engineer may design
a system as large as a power plant for an entire city
or as small as an integrated circuit. An electrical
engineering degree may provide the opportunity to
design the analog or digital processing or the wireless
communication for tomorrow's electronic products.

combines elements of electrical engineering and computer
science to understand the hardware/software interface
common to computing and information systems. A computer
engineer may perform tasks such as the design of a
microprocessor or the development of an embedded-system
that may be used in applications that range from desktops
to hand-held devices. More

and teamwork are an integral part of our programs.
Rose students take a five-course sequence in engineering
design that begins early in their sophomore year and
culminates with a yearlong engineering design project
in their senior year. In the senior year project,
a student design team works with a faculty mentor
and an industrial sponsor on a challenging real-world
project provided by the sponsor.
Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology is one of the premier
institutions offering undergraduate degrees in engineering,
science, and mathematics. Our programs are exciting
and challenging, and our students are among the best
in the world. In addition to having outstanding students
and advanced facilities, Rose-Hulman is distinguished
by providing each student with a supportive environment
that helps ensure success. The graduation rate for students
accepted into our programs is very high.

What sets Rose-Hulman
apart is that, at Rose, students are our highest priority.
Faculty members at Rose-Hulman are dedicated to the
education of students. Students interact in the classroom
and laboratory with faculty, not teaching assistants.
Faculty are also available outside the classroom to
provide students guidance in their coursework and
other interests. We work to ensure student success.
provide many opportunities for students to excel and
have fun. These include sports, fine arts, and a variety
of other interests. Co-curricular activities are also
available for students in technical areas. The Aerial
Robotics Club is one of the few teams in the country
that has developed a remote controlled helicopter
capable of autonomous flight. The Solar Phantom Student
Team designed and piloted the solar car that won the
2000 Formula Sun Track Race. The Solar Phantom team
recently completed the Chicago to Los Angeles solar
race via Route 66, finishing in the top ten.
