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 electrical engineering undergraduate bachelor's degree program, the department administers computer and software engineering programs.
The electrical engineering program delivers a curriculum in core areas such as electrical circuits, digital circuit design, embedded systems, computer programming, energy systems, system and signal processing, power systems, dynamical systems, microelectronics, electromagnetics, etc. Thus, as an electrical engineering major, students will have the opportunity to select elective courses in Electronics, Power, Signal processing and communications, control and robotics, computer hardware and software, and biomedical and rehabilitation engineering.
Our team-based, collaborative approach encourages students to apply knowledge and skills to solve practical, real-world problems. Teamwork and leadership skills, creative problem-solving, research and analysis, and evidence-based problem-solving, combined with Clarkson's common education, provide a strong foundation for a successful career.
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.
