Electrical and computer engineering influences the day-to-day life of every human on Earth today, whether they're using a cell phone, a computer, the Internet, home appliances, cars, medical equipment — the list is endless. It's at the core of almost every human enterprise. Electrical engineering focuses on communications, computing, and control — which we apply to developing electronics, light detection, and energy production.
Here in the William Hansen Hall Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, we prepare you for a career in a wide range of exciting careers with robotics, navigation and communications systems, manufacturing, aviation, and more. To get you there, we provide hands-on experience so you have the skills and smarts to succeed in your first job and beyond. We've built and designed small satellites that are still in orbit and and our students shine in robotics competitions. Our students receive acclaim from the University level to the national level for their work in and out of the classroom.
