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.

Students in Electrical Engineering (EE) study, design, and build devices and systems which utilize electricity and electromagnetic fields. This wide-ranging discipline covers problems at many scales, from the physical design of nano-sized transistors, through complex circuit analysis, up to the signals carried by communication and control systems. Application examples include cell phones, solar cells, power generation and distribution, and sensors.

Computer Engineering (CPE) is a field that blends hardware engineering and software development. Computer Engineers design and build digital systems, including computing devices and networks. Computer Engineers are particularly concerned with the interactions between software and hardware (programs and chips). Application examples include smart devices, the Internet of Things (IoT), and artificial intelligence. In this program, special focus is placed upon embedded systems design and the integration of sensors, actuators, and communication technologies.

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 Electrical and Computer Engineering Masters Degree.
