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
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.
