About Electrical and Computer Engineering

Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) is one of the core engineering programs at Rutgers. ECE represents a rapidly developing field, including wireless communications, computer systems and software engineering, information processing and systems, micro- and nano-electronics, energy (power electronics, solar cells, smart grid), environment (sensors and sensor networks for environmental protection), and bioelectronics and biophotonics. The Electrical and Computer Engineering program at Rutgers University is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

The program offers you two undergraduate curriculum options: Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering.

The Electrical Engineering option is designed to provide expertise in a wide range of areas, including wireless communication systems and networks, signal and information processing, information privacy and security, cyber physical systems, electronic materials, devices and circuits, biosensors, bio-electrical engineering, computer vision, and robotics.

The Computer Engineering option, while building upon a broad background in electrical engineering, prepares students for careers in the area of computer hardware and software engineering, software verification, embedded systems, FPGA, human computer interaction, cloud computing, and virtual reality.
