Courses

Our courses provide opportunities to discover and explore engineering and technology in greater depth and build your expertise.

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers a variety of courses ranging from introductory 100-level classes to 800-level doctoral coursework in electrical and computer engineering (ECE), telecommunications (TCOM), and digital forensics (CFRS). Descriptions and prerequisites as well as further information about each one can be found in the catalog.

We encourage you to check out our syllabi to get more details about the courses we offer each semester.
