Students in the Department of Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science work on — and even develop — the technologies that make air and space flight possible. From navigation and control systems to the electroluminescent dimming of the windows in a 787 airliner, these technologies involve embedded computers like those found in mobile phone and flight control systems.
There is always something new being developed in this area, and students get to work with the latest systems in electronics and the digital world.
The EECS Department has four undergraduate programs: Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, and Software Engineering. Each of these programs involves a high degree of systems thinking: understanding how the individual parts of a complex system fit together to make a working whole. Students don’t just work within their own discipline, they interact with other disciplines, too, just like real-world engineers.
