The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) offers two undergraduate degrees: a B.S. Eng. in Electrical Engineering and a B.S. Eng. in Computer Engineering. The ECE Department also offers opportunities for double majors with computer science (CS) and physics.
All undergraduate students are assigned faculty advisors and students are required to meet with their advisors, especially during registration periods or whenever there is some matter of concern. Students should consult with their advisor on the best path through each track.
