our program
Our Program
  • Electrical and Computer engineering topics
  • Eight semesters of Engineering Clinics
    • Multidisciplinary, team-oriented, engineering design, development and research
  • Clinic “consultant”
  • ALL ECE courses are lab courses – hands-on, minds-on

  • Graduates from current undergraduate SE programs in the nation do not possess sufficient skills to contribute effectively as systems engineers in their respective industries; and
  • A “domain focus” is essential in a program offering SE degrees.
