About EECS

At the Russ College, our School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science offers the opportunity to create for good. From your iPhone to your airport runway, as an electrical engineer or computer scientist, you'll touch many lives through your work. Our electrical and electronics engineering faculty research, design, develop, and test new technologies like navigation systems or the latest cell phone technology – and they teach students how to do the same. Computer engineers research, design, develop, and test new hardware and software, while computer scientists develop and analyze software and applications, and apply algorithms and computing technologies to fields like medicine and education.

Through our B.S. and M.S. degree programs in either electrical engineering or computer science, or our Ph.D. degree program in electrical engineering and computer science, you'll experience what it means to create for good – developing tomorrow's technology and improving society. Studying another discipline? We also offer an academic minor program in computer science that is available to students in other majors at the university, plus undergraduate and graduate certificates in bioinformatics.

In partnership with governmental and private industry, faculty in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science are shaping the future of these fields through applied research at the Avionics Engineering Center — the only facility of its kind in the U.S. — and the Center for Scientific Computing and Immersive Technology, where some researchers in the VITAL Lab are applying computer gaming technology to practical purposes like personalized health care and personal finance education.
