Future Students of EECE
If you want to know what an electrical or computer engineer does, look down at the smart phone in your hand. Electrical and Computer Engineers are the makers of modern technology, from mobile devices and tablet computers, to smart power grids and Mars rovers. They design the protocols that transmit voice and date to your phone, the electronic circuits that allow you to interact with your phone through sound, sight, and touch, and the software for that connects to the hardware allowing the apps that we all use. If you are interested in becoming a creator of high tech, rather than just a user, I encourage you to investigate our programs. Since we train you to be problems solvers, EECE graduates also have the skills to work in electric power, biomedical technologies, and many other technical fields, as well as business, law, and medicine.
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers:
- Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering
- Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering
- An accelerated curriculum for a dual Electrical and Computer Engineering major from which both degrees can be obtained in 5 years.
- An accelerated Bachelors to Masters program, in which qualified senior can take up to 9 hours of dual undergraduate/graduate credit allowing them to get both BS and MS in 5 years.
- Honors programs in both Electrical and Computer Engineering that focuses on mentoring of individual students.
- A Graduate Certificate Program in Imaging and Signal Processing
- A Masters program in Electrical and Computer Engineering
- A Doctoral program
- Funded research ranching from intelligent systems to biomedical imaging.
Our talented faculty 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.
I encourage you to contact me directly if you have any questions about enrolling in the EECE program at the University of Memphis.
