About the Department

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) is responsible for administering undergraduate degrees in Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Robotics Engineering, as well as a dual-degree program in Electrical and Computer Engineering. The ECE Department also oversees four M.S.E graduate degree programs, as well a PhD program in Electrical, Electronics, and Computer Engineering and a D.Eng degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering. Our undergraduate programs have more than 550 students presently enrolled. Each year, approximately 60 - 70 students graduate with a Bachelor's degree from an ECE program and approximately 50 students graduate with a master's degree from one of our programs.

We are proud of our high retention rate which exceeds 60%. While most of the graduates go on to work in industry often in a design and development environment, a few pursue full-time graduate studies at regional and national universities.

In 2023, the University of Michigan-Dearborn was ranked among the nation's best Electrical Engineering degree programs by Best Accredited Colleges. Our online Master's Degree in Electrical Engineering was recognized by OnlineMastersDegrees.org (OMD), as well, earning it a spot among only six percent of U.S. postsecondary institutions to have earned a ranking position.
