The world today is totally dependent on electricity, computers and electrical/electronic devices. Electrical and computer engineers are responsible for making day-to-day life easier while protecting the nation’s infrastructure against cyber and physical attacks. These engineers improve quality of life by creating innovative systems such as smart houses, self-driving cars and medical instruments.

Electrical and computer engineering involves researching, developing and testing electronic and computer components. Engineers study computing processes, circuit boards, memory devices, networks and routers while examining new frontiers in computer hardware. The electrical and computer engineering field is marked by its advancements in evolving areas of technology such as optics, electric power systems and microelectronics.

The bachelor of science degree in electrical and computer engineering ties together the disciplines, creating a platform for students interested in computer and hardware design. Students learn how to create schematics of computer equipment, test hardware models, analyze data, update existing computer equipment and manage the hardware manufacturing process.

Students complete a core electrical engineering curriculum with an emphasis on computer science while allowing room for electives in TU’s reputable humanities-based programs. A strong background in mathematics and physics is required along with interests in bioengineering, electromagnetic fields and circuit systems.
