What is the Bachelor of Science in ECE Curriculum?
Engineers use science, math, and fundamental principles to solve problems. This may include designing new devices and systems, testing those systems, investigating failures, overseeing manufacturing or construction, research leading to new technologies, and many other activities. Examples of work done by electrical or computer engineers include:
Many of these areas are reflected in the BSECE curriculum through required and elective courses, in addition to extra-curricular activities, student projects, and undergraduate research opportunities. Learn more about electrical and computer engineering at tryengineering.com or this IEEE brochure.
The ECE curriculum consists of two main course stems. In the electrical stem, students study signals and systems, electromagnetics, electronic circuit design and control systems design. In the computer stem, students study digital logic design, computer organization, embedded computer systems, hardware/software design and digital signal processing.
With these two required stems, students gain a foundation in the major areas of electrical and computer engineering and are prepared for careers in a broad spectrum of industries. Elective courses allow a student to study a specialized field of interest, including areas like communication and networking, signal and image processing, optics and photonics, control and robotics, digital and embedded systems, wireless and microwave systems, and power and energy systems.

Students that receive an ECE degree have a wide range of exciting career and graduate degree options. Of the ECE students graduating in May of 2019, 83 percent had a full-time position or acceptance to graduate school before they graduated. Find out more about our alumni and where they work here.
While ECE students participate in many organizations across the campus, there are organizations dedicated specifically to students in the major. From the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) to the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) to the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) to Engineers with a Mission, students have opportunities to engage in leadership, professional development, student projects, and service. Learn more about our student organizations.
All students in the school of Engineering and Computer Science can apply to live in the Teal Residential College.
The BSECE degree is accredited by ABET, the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology. ABET accreditation in engineering provides assurance that a university program meets the quality standards of the profession. Students seeking to become a licensed Professional Engineer (PE) post-graduation must graduate from an ABET-accredited program. Learn more about our ABET accreditation.
Students pursuing the Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering complete a rigorous course of study that includes courses from the Humanities and Social Sciences, Mathematics and Basic Sciences, and Engineering. Electrical and Computer Engineering professionals are required to demonstrate strong written and spoken communication skills, an understanding of engineering economics, and familiarity with engineering ethics.
This course of study prepares students well for careers in industry, government, education, and non-profits. B.S. Degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering
