As an instructional unit of the College of Engineering, the Electrical Engineering Department provides education in electrical engineering with a proper balance between undergraduate and graduate instruction, and research and development that will impact the state's development of high technology and encourage entrepreneurial activities. The department is committed to providing a broad science-based education in the fundamental principles of electrical engineering and a solid foundation in electrical, electronic, and computer systems. Because of the constant technological changes in electrical engineering, great emphasis is placed on updating and improving the curriculum to meet the needs of industry and to provide a timely and relevant program. The department offers the BS, MS (Plan A, thesis only), and PhD degrees
Faculty and graduate student research interests include telecommunication and networks, signal processing, computer architecture, computer-vision and robotics, artificial intelligence, sensing and measurement technology including solid state and sensor devices, neural networks, communication, computer engineering, physical electronics and sensors, microwave and optics, computer-aided IC design, and VLSI circuit design.
The discipline shares resources with other engineering fields and computer science. The interdisciplinary doctoral program in Communication and Information Science requires coordination between selectors for Information and Computer Science, Communication, Electrical Engineering, and the Library and Information Science Program.
The department uses the Reserve Book Room and the computer-based learning materials available in CLIC.
