Design Your Program

Multiple Areas of Specialization

Within the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, you can design your own program from one or more of these focus areas:

Structured Specializations and Minor

Specialization in Energy Systems:

The exciting Energy Systems in ECE specialization is intended to prepare students for professional practice. It provides students with a working knowledge of state-of-the-art traditional and alternative energy systems. Broadly speaking the specialization will familiarize students with concepts of energy sources, energy policy, energy distribution, and energy optimization methods. It is also intended that students further develop technical competence in several technical specializations of ECE. Students graduating with this specialization may become leaders in developing novel solutions to energy issues of the future.

Specialization in ECE Technology Management:

The Technology Management in ECE specialization is intended for to prepare students for professional practice. It is intended to provide students with the organizational and business tools required for managing technology based initiatives. It is also intended to further develop technical competence in one of several technical specializations of ECE.

Systems Engineering Minor:

There is an increasing need in industry for engineers who not only have expertise in a particular engineering discipline, but who also possess diverse interdisciplinary skills. Prof. Peter Jackson puts the goals of this program very clearly... "We strive to equip engineers and managers with tools that work and reward right away and convey to them a habit of asking the right questions, seeing the open possibilities, and planning the best path - and to do all this when the situation is still fluid." - Peter L. Jackson, Director of Systems Engineering Program.
