Students may follow the baccalaureate program leading to the Bachelor of Science degree in either electrical engineering or computer and systems engineering. The objective of both programs is to prepare graduates for professional practice and/or advanced study, together with continuing personal and professional growth.
In particular, the ECSE department seeks to graduate visionary and versatile professionals who will have a solid foundation in mathematics, science, and engineering, and be able to apply these to practical use. They will be able to identify, model, analyze, and solve challenging real world problems; have specialized technical knowledge in their chosen field; have strong communication skills with emphasis on technical writing and interpersonal communication; be able to design innovative products, processes, or systems; perform effectively on diverse, multidisciplinary teams, both as leader and as contributor; be informed citizens broadly educated in the humanities and social sciences; be prepared to practice engineering in a socially responsible and ethical manner; and have learned in a creative, stimulating environment that prepares and motivates them to continue to grow and learn.
Engineering design is introduced and developed in the required courses ENGR-2050, ENGR-2350, and ECSE-2610, and in various electives. These courses set the stage for capstone design experience in the design elective.
The design elective is also a writing-intensive course that satisfies the institute writing requirement.
The design elective and at least two other electives form a technical concentration in an area chosen by the student. Other electives may be used to further emphasize areas of individual interest or for complementary study in various fields, including minor programs in the liberal arts, science, or management.
The department encourages qualified students to consider graduate study in electrical engineering or computer and systems engineering.
