The Electrical and Computer Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.
The Electrical and Computer Engineering major (ECE), leading to a B.S. degree, provides a foundation that reflects the broad scope of this engineering discipline.
Concentrations include computer architecture and organization, digital systems and computer vision; power systems control; communications, networks, information theory and coding, signal processing and optimization; electronic circuits, VLSI, solid state physics and devices, MEMs, nanotechnology, lasers and optoelectronics; electromagnetics, radiophysics, space sciences, and plasmas.
ECE majors must take ECE 2300 /ENGRD 2300 as an engineering distribution course. The major normally begins in the spring of the sophomore year. Of the courses listed below, only ENGRD 2100 /ECE 2100 and ECE 2300 /ENGRD 2300 , and ECE 2200 /ENGRD 2220 are currently taught in both the fall and spring semesters.
ECE Majors must complete:
1. The major required courses:
2. At least three ECE foundation courses:
The current list of ECE foundation courses is:
4. At least 14 credit hours (not including the credit hours of the CDE course):
Must include four ECE courses (in addition to the CDE course) at the 3000-level or above, at least two of which must be at the 4000-level or above, totaling at least 14 credits.
6. A minimum of 51 credits in satisfying items 1 through 5.
Majors in Electrical and Computer Engineering are expected to meet the following academic standards:
- GPA ≥ 2.3 every semester.
- At least C– in every course used to satisfy major requirements.
- Satisfactory completion of MATH 2940 , PHYS 2214 , and at least two of ENGRD 2100 /ECE 2100 , ECE 2200 /ENGRD 2220 , ECE 3400 , and ENGRD 2300 /ECE 2300 by the end of the sophomore year and adequate progress toward the degree in subsequent semesters.
