The Electrical Engineering department offers two related specialties, one in electrical engineering and the other in electrical engineering with a computer engineering specialization.
The electrical engineering major offers a broad curriculum that covers most of the various subfields of the profession. As its name implies, the specialization in computer engineering major focuses more specifically on software and hardware topics related to computer and other digital system design.
Both curricula lead to the same degree of Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering.
Within the rich tradition of Jesuit education, it is the mission of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering to teach and prepare broadly-educated, socially-responsible, articulate, and skilled engineers for leadership in electrical engineering and related fields.
