The ECE Department mission for undergraduate education is to provide a thorough grounding in electrical science, electrical engineering, and computer engineering, together with an intensive training in mathematics. The techniques of experimental science and technology are emphasized through investigative laboratory work and classroom lecture/demonstrations.
Requirements of the Major
