Our faculty, graduate students and undergraduate students are working on some of the most challenging and exciting research projects of our time. With approximately 85 teaching and research faculty members, 1013 undergraduate students, 421 graduate students and over $30 million in research expenditures, the department is one of the most active education and research units at the University of Maryland.
At the undergraduate level, the ECE department offers degree programs in Computer Engineering (in collaboration with the department of Computer Science) and Electrical Engineering.
Our undergraduate programs in Electrical and Computer Engineering are based on a solid foundation in mathematics, physics, and basic engineering science. The curriculum of the first two years is designed to enable our students to succeed in the final years of the program. With a graduation requirement of 120 credits in both computer and electrical engineering, most of our students complete their studies within four years. Opportunities abound for motivated students to become more engaged with the practical application of their curriculum including Undergraduate Research Fellowships, internship opportunities, professional engineering organization involvement, and student competitions.
