Welcome to the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Kennesaw State University. Students studying electrical or computer engineering learn from industry-expert faculty in the university’s state-of-the-art facilities. Electrical and computer engineers create practical, innovative solutions to design and build technologies and products that matter.

Electrical engineering is arguably the largest discipline of engineering. It focuses on the application of the principles of electricity and its use with electrical devices and systems. In this energy conscious world, a thorough understanding of energy and its uses is essential to the success of an electrical engineer.

Computer engineering is a discipline that integrates several fields of electrical engineering and computer science making it a perfect blend for this technology-driven industry. Computer engineers embed computers in other systems and machines, build networks to transfer data, and make computers smaller, faster and more capable.

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers students an industry-tailored curriculum combined with hands-on experience designed to prepare graduates as electrical engineers, computer engineers, consulting engineers, project supervisors and more. ECE offers students an Electrical Engineering Bachelors Degree, Computer Engineering Bachelors Degree, as well as an Applied Engineering – Electrical Masters Degree.
