Electrical & Computer Engineering – Student Opportunities

We offer a variety of opportunities, for students to put classroom lessons into practice through hands-on projects. The options range from course-related activities to student competition teams, or real-world projects at Rose‑Hulman Ventures.

Hands-On Learning

You’ll become a better engineer by applying what you learn in class to hands-on problem solving. That’s why we offer several opportunities to put your knowledge to work.

Quote

There are many things I can say about the wonderful faculty and academics in the CSSE department, but what's most important to know is that you leave feeling like you were a part of a family. All of the faculty take a genuine interest in the students, regarding not only each student's education but also their lives in general.
