Undergraduate

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (B.S.E.E.). The department also offers a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering (B.S.CP.E.) in conjunction with the Department of Computer Science. Both degree programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET) http://www.abet.org/.

The B.S.E.E. curriculum provides a strong foundation in mathematics, physics, chemistry and computer science during the first two years of study. The fundamentals of circuits, electronics, digital and computer systems, electrodynamics, linear systems, and energy conversion are introduced in the second and third years. In the senior year, students further explore their specific areas of interest and gain in-depth exposure to engineering design through the choice of electives.

The B.S.CP.E. curriculum concentrates on the design and application of computer hardware and software systems. During the first three years, the curriculum provides students with a strong foundation in mathematics, physics, chemistry and computer science, followed by the fundamentals of electrical engineering and computer science that form the basis of computer engineering. During the senior year, advanced courses provide students with depth in selected areas and exposure to the practice of engineering design. Elective courses provide the flexibility to take specialized courses in a number of different areas.

Students with strong interests in both electrical engineering and computer engineering can elect to earn a dual degree, B.S.E.E./B.S.CP.E.

Note for All Current Students

The ECE department considers the advising process an important activity to help students plan their journey through IIT and beyond. Each semester, students must meet their ECE faculty adviser during the pre-registration period. Students must closely adhere to course prerequisites to maximize academic performance and satisfy requirements for ABET accreditation. For details, please visit the ECE Advising web site.
