About the Department

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), which is responsible for administering the Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering programs, has about 325 students enrolled in the sophomore through senior years. Each year approximately 60 - 70 students graduate with a Bachelor's degree in EE/CE and about 20 students graduate with a master's degree in EE/CE.

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.

Fall 2020 Office Hours

In an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19, office hours for Fall 2020 are being held virtually. Please consult with your instructors or review your course syllabus for the best ways to meet with them online and to verify office hours.

ECE Department Staff can be reached via e-mail at the addresses shown in the Department Staff section below.

ECE Faculty and Instructor Office Locations

Due the renovation of the Engineering Lab Building, ECE faculty, adjunct instructor, staff, and technician offices have been relocated to various points on campus. Please consult the ECE Campus Map below for updated listings of our current locations.
