Chair's Welcome Features

Dr. Deaton

Welcome to our website!

Electrical and Computer Engineers are the makers of modern technology, from mobile devices and tablet computers, to smart power grids and Mars rovers. If you are interested in becoming a creator of high tech, rather than just a user, I encourage you to investigate our programs.

We have a talented faculty who are dedicated to your success. They are accomplished researchers and teachers, who have received research awards from many funding agencies and companies, including the National Science Foundation, the Department of Defense, and National Institute of Standards and Technology. In addition, many of them have experience as practicing engineers. Their job is to impart their experience and expertise to you in the classroom.

We have programs at all levels, undergraduate, Masters, and Doctoral, in Electrical and Computer Engineering. For undergraduates, our program provides a solid foundation, as well as the opportunity to innovate and explore. The Honors program allows outstanding undergraduates to have a more individual experience. Opportunities for undergraduates to do research with faculty are abundant. The graduate programs for Masters and Doctoral degrees give students more in-depth knowledge to prepare them for academic, research, or advanced industry positions.

Electrical and Computer Engineers are always near the top of average starting salary. In addition, this country will be facing a critical shortage of engineers in the years to come, which will only increase demand. Therefore, if you are not afraid of a little hard work for a career with a lifetime of financial and intellectual rewards, then, perhaps we are for you. I encourage you to contact me directly if you have any questions.

 

Sincerely,

Russell Deaton, Ph. D.

Eddie White

Eddie White (CpE/EE 2009) traveled to Australia with Dr. Khan Iftekharuddin to collaborate with other researchers on perfecting face-recognition systems. White's work on this National Science Foundation-funded project in the Intelligent Systems and Image Processing (ISIP) lab won him second place in the undergraduate engineering category of the annual U of M Student Research Forum.
