The Department of Electrical, Computer and Biomedical Engineering offers programs leading to the BS, MS, and PhD degrees. The interdisciplinary nature of our Department will provide the new faculty member with opportunities to interact with a broad range of colleagues. A 180,000 square foot engineering building is under construction and scheduled for occupancy in July 2019. This new building will provide an excellent environment for interdisciplinary research collaborations.
