Engineering teaches students to apply engineering methods for solving professional problems. The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Clarkson University offers three ABET-accredited programs. In addition to the computer engineering undergraduate bachelor's degree program, the department administers the electrical and software engineering programs.
The Computer Engineering curriculum allows graduates to develop a solid theoretical foundation and a sound knowledge of engineering design based on a broad spectrum of concepts, principles, and techniques. Students gain experience with modern microcontroller-based embedded system design. In addition, they learn hardware description languages (HDLs), industry-standard simulation, synthesis, debugging, and verification tools for FPGA hardware design. Computer Engineering courses also provide students with skills in C/C++, Python, and Java in the context of modern integrated software development environments.
Clarkson's program balances hardware, software, and systems concepts, along with a robust set of communication and teamwork skills that industry leaders seek. Ultimately, students have an opportunity to showcase their accumulated knowledge in a design project that they complete as a capstone to the program. In addition, some of the design projects give students opportunities to work with professors and graduate students and publish the work at student conferences.
Dedicated faculty and staff encourage technology development to serve humanity and express that mission throughout our electrical engineering undergraduate bachelor's degree program. In addition, an extensive community of undergraduate students, graduate students, full-time faculty members, and more than 5,800 alumni makes the electrical engineering program a great choice.
