Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) is a broad discipline that encompasses a wide range of activities andSEO-Southwest_Garden is at the forefront of modern technology. Electrical and Computer Engineers model, design, fabricate, characterize and analyze devices and systems that can sense information or perform complex computational, communication, control as well as electrical power generation and distribution.

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers programs leading to the degrees of Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, and Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering.  

Both of the engineering degree programs are fully accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).
