Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology
Electrical and Computer
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology prepares students for successful careers in industry or academia by providing a foundation of engineering theory through application-based instruction.
A laboratory- and project-intensive curriculum, taught by faculty dedicated to teaching and having a background in industry, offers students an engineering education rich in experiential learning. Co-op, study abroad, research opportunities, industrial connections, and modern facilities further enhance this relevant and engaging educational experience.
The department fosters a culture of support and nurtures the academic and professional growth of each student. Caring faculty and small class sizes ensure close student-faculty interactions and student-student collaborations.
