Electrical and Computer Engineering Study
Electrical and computer engineering harnesses the properties of electricity and materials to make possible a variety of devices and systems used for communication, computation, robotic control, navigation, remote sensing, medical imaging, and power generation and transmission.
In today’s world, engineers are involved in a host of design activities. They design complex integrated circuits used in computers and communications equipment, as well as the processes that fabricate arrays of transistors in materials such as silicon and gallium arsenide. They develop the control logic that determines how industrial robots operate and they create sophisticated computer programs that allow computers and robots to behave as though they have vision. Electrical engineers play a key role in the design of radar equipment used for navigation in virtually all spacecraft, aircraft, and ships, as well as the brains found in microwave ovens and automobile engines. Some specialize in the engineering of modern, high speed, digital computers. Many also function effectively in management, marketing and sales efforts of corporations that create technical products. Others pursue advanced studies and participate in the education of other engineers.
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) offers course work leading to undergraduate (BSEE) and graduate (MSEE and PhD) degrees in electrical engineering and an undergraduate degree in computer engineering. The BS degree in computer engineering (BSCpE) is offered jointly with the Computer Science Department.
The BSEE and BSCpE degrees at UCCS are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).
