<p>The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at Howard University offers three undergraduate degree programs: the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE), Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering (BS CE), and the Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (BS CS). Each of the three undergraduate degree programs is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, <a href=http://www.abet.org.

The EECS curricula are design-based and fully integrate science, engineering, and applications. The upper-level courses and electives provide further depth of study with emphasis on research and international experiences for undergraduate students.

Electrical engineering and computer engineering continue to be flourishing professions that are in high demand. All around us, in energy, television, GPS and medical systems to robotics, domestic appliances, smartphones, computers and autonomous vehicles, the fingerprint of the electrical and computer engineering fields is inherently visible. New processes and systems that impact our lives daily are consistently being developed by electrical and computer engineers. Electrical and computer engineers will continue to shape and mold our global future.

Computer science is currently one of the fastest growing career fields in the United States, along with electrical and computer engineering, according to the United States Department of Labor - Bureau of Labor Statistics. Computer scientists design and develop software and applications that also shape and mold our global future. Computer scientists have assumed a most critical role in our cyberworld: the development of cyber defense solutions to combat cyber attackers.

Through the years, the College of Engineering and Architecture (CEA) at Howard University has been among the top schools in the nation in the number of engineering degrees awarded to African Americans and other minorities. The Department of EECS has made significant contributions in this area.
