Competitively-awarded research expenditures in the ECE Department from external sources last year topped $2.8M, with funding from NSF, DoD, NASA, DoE, and many other public and private agencies. Enrolling 450 students, the Department offers undergraduate degrees in Electrical Engineering and in Computer Engineering, and graduate MS and PhD degrees in EE.
