Electrical and Computer Engineering Laboratories

Laboratories emphasize the major specialty areas of electrical and computer engineering. Laboratory courses are organized around design and the solution of engineering problems rather than a pattern of routine experiments.

Computer Facilities

The Electrical and Computer Engineering department is well equipped with a large number of state-of-the-art computer systems and workstations which are used for undergraduate instruction and research. These systems are available in all laboratories and in our student computer room. The department's computer systems are integrated into the campus-wide network. The Electrical and Computer Engineering building also offers a wireless network so that students have ready access to the computer systems from every classroom and meeting space.
