Message from the Chair

Welcome to Howard University’s Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS)!

The Department of EECS supports three academic programs: Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, and Computer Engineering. Each academic program offers a Bachelor of Science degree program. At the graduate level, the Department of EECS offers the Master of Engineering and Doctor of Philosophy degree programs in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. The Department of EECS also offers a certificate in Computer Science for those students who wish to combine a technical degree with a broad education in the field of cybersecurity. The Department of EECS is the largest department in the College of Engineering and Architecture, as gauged by the number of students, faculty, and sponsored research projects.

The Department has twenty-three full-time tenured/tenure-track faculty members and over 400 undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students. Students and faculty conduct research in the areas of artificial intelligence, computational game theory, complex systems, embedded systems, including VLSI, FPGA, data management, data science, machine learning, energy systems, including wind and power grid management/control networking, computer and network security, software engineering, signal processing, and imaging, micro/Nano systems, and electronics and instrumentation. Their research work has been sponsored by a variety of funding sources including NSF, NIH, DOD, NASA, DOE, Intel, and Moog, among others. They are active in their respective research communities by serving on editorial boards for highly reputable journals and program/organizing committees for leading international conferences.

I look forward to meeting in person to discuss how I can assist you in achieving your engineering education goals.

Dr. Ahmed Rubaai
Professor and Chair of ECE
