The Electrical Engineering (EE) program builds up from a fundamental core knowledge of mathematics, physics and chemistry. Electrical engineers study fields dealing with electricity, communications, signal processing, controls, power and electromagnetics. They work on components, devices and systems that revolutionize the way we live and evolve. We depend on electrical engineers to create, design, produce, operate and maintain the world's equipment and services as well as to solve future life challenges with advances in science and technology. Opportunities in the EE field are virtually endless and the specialized education EE undergraduate students receive at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at UCF prepares them for successful and profitable lifelong careers.
The Undergraduate Catalog is the official source of degree requirements for all undergraduate programs based upon the year you are accepted to UCF.EE students have many unique advantages at UCF:
- • The ECE Department is located in the Harris Corp. Engineering Center - an ultra high-tech building with revolutionary equipment, computers, and labs for students.
- • EE students are assigned a qualified academic advisor. Each student is encouraged to seek academic advisement before registering for classes each semester to ensure that satisfactory academic progress is being maintained and to minimize excess hours in the program.
- • All EE classes are taught by the faculty and/or by qualified professionals in the field.
- • ECE's two-semester Senior Design course for EE majors is a dynamic and exciting real-life experience course and is a vehicle for students to demonstrate their engineering skills acquired through academic study. The Senior Design course is a centerpiece of the EE undergraduate educational experience.
- • The ECE department has several prestigious research programs providing for excellent opportunities for Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REUs).
- • The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Student Branch, Eta Kappa Nu (ECE Honor Society) and the Women in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (WEECS) provide opportunities for peer networking, face-to-face meetings with experts, professional development and career guidance.
- • An Accelerated BS - MS degree program in CpE is available to qualified UCF students.
