Undergraduate Programs

Electrical and Computer Engineering continue to be attractive professions that are in great demand. This is due in large part to the impact electrical and computer engineering had on our lives and will continue to have well in the 21st century. From energy, television, GPS and medical systems to robotics, domestic appliances, i-phones, computers and unmanned vehicles, the "fingerprint" of electrical and computer engineering fields is more than obvious. New processes and systems that impact our daily lives are being developed almost everyday.

It is predicted that electrical and computer engineering will continue to play a major role in shaping mankind future all over the globe. It is indeed an exciting time to be an electrical and computer engineer. There continues to be a great national need for a large number of skilled electrical and computer engineers. Through the years Howard University College of Engineering, Architecture and Computer Sciences (CEACS) has been among top schools in the nation in the number of engineering degrees awarded to African Americans and minorities. The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) made significant contributions in this area.

The ECE offers courses leading to the B.S. in electrical engineering, BS in computer engineering; and M.E., and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical and Engineering. The following areas of concentration are offered: communications and signal processing, computer engineering, power and energy, control systems, solid-state electronics and microwaves, and antennas. Our undergraduate programs in electrical and computer engineering are accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). The Electrical and Computer engineering curricula are design-based and fully integrate science, engineering, and applications. The upper-level courses and electives provide further depth of study. More emphasis has been allocated to research and international experiences for undergraduates.
