Electrical and Computer Engineering Program

Welcome to the Electrical and Computer Engineering Program (BSEE) at the Weisberg Division of Engineering at the College of Information Technology and Engineering. The Electrical and Computer program will allow students to select one of two areas of emphasis: Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering. Graduates of this Program will contribute to West Virginia’s economic development, advance its competitive edge globally and contribute to improvement in the quality of life.

Electrical engineering is a field of engineering that generally deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism. The fields of electrical and computer engineering cover a wide range of subfields including electronics, power engineering, telecommunications, control systems, radio-frequency engineering, signal processing, instrumentation, microelectronics, digital systems including hardware, software, compliers and operating systems, coding, cryptography, network, mobile and distributed computing system, and cyber physical systems and security. As such, the BSEE program at Marshall University (MU) will prepare graduates with a BSEE with two areas of emphasis: general electrical engineering, and computer engineering. It will, also, emphasize service, systems-based knowledge, and sustainability with an eye toward the interface of traditional electrical and computer engineering with new and emerging fields. In accordance with the standards set forth by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) and MU’s mission, the specific educational objectives of this program are to graduate students who will:

  1. Practice the electrical and computer engineering discipline successfully within community-accepted standards
  2. Possess teamwork and communications skills to develop a successful career in electrical and computer engineering
  3. Fulfill professional and ethical responsibilities in the practice of electrical and computer engineering, including social, environmental and economic considerations,
  4. Engage in professional service, such as participation in professional society and community service
  5. Engage in life-long learning activities, such as graduate studies or professional workshops, and
  6. Develop a professional career in the prevailing market that meets personal goals, objectives and desires

I invite you to learn more about our undergraduate and graduate programs and our faculty. We urge you to come visit us and see the many innovative things taking place. We would love to have you as a part of our team.
