The UA Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering features nationally-accredited programs, affording students the flexibility to shape their academic goals to suit developing interests.
UA’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers dynamic programs for students interested in electrical engineering, computer engineering, or musical audio engineering. Also see the University Scholars (BS/MS) Program designed specifically for outstanding students to complete the requirements for both their bachelor’s degree and a master of science in electrical engineering in an accelerated five year period.
The electrical engineering program prepares students for dynamic careers in the varied areas of power generation, communication systems, manufacturing controls, signals processing, and control systems.
The computer engineering option gives students a broad knowledge of the software and hardware components of modern computing systems, detailed computer-systems design, and the role of computer systems in various engineering disciplines.
The musical audio engineering degree program is designed to prepare students for the broadest spectrum of recording studio operations; the equipment used in recording studios; live recording environments; in-depth understanding of equipment design, maintenance, and operations; and detailed knowledge of signal processing for audio applications.
A student should apply for the Electrical Engineering (EE) minor prior to achieving senior standing in order to have sufficient time to complete all requirements.
