Electrical and Computer Engineering

About the Department

Tennessee Tech's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers two solid undergraduate programs that emphasize the fundamentals of electrical engineering and enable graduates to enter the workforce with confidence. Undergraduate curricula are offered that lead to Bachelor of Science degrees in electrical engineering (B.S.E.E.) or computer engineering (B.S.CmpE.). Advanced studies leading to the Master of Science (M.S.) in Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Engineering are available.

All 15 faculty members hold doctorates and one has a joint appointment in one of three Centers of Excellence. These centers have brought the university international recognition and provide unique opportunities for electrical and computer engineering undergraduates to participate in center-related projects.

Students from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering are known throughout the Southeast for their enthusiastic participation in professional organizations and events. The student chapter of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is one of the most active student organizations on campus. It offers a multitude of activities, social and professional, and successfully competes with other universities in the professional and technical contests offered through the IEEE Southeastern Conference held each year. Officers in the IEEE student chapter and Eta Kappa Nu, an honor society for electrical engineering students, develop leadership and communication skills invaluable in today's job market. The department takes pride in producing well-rounded, professionally competent graduates.
