Undergraduate and Graduate Academics


Rutgers offers a dynamic electrical and computer engineering program with world-class labs in innovative fields including cloud computing, wireless/mobile communications, virtual reality, signal processing, and nanotechnology. We offer two curriculum options for undergraduate students: electrical engineering and computer engineering, allowing students to focus on a specific area by the appropriate selection of elective courses. 

In addition, the electrical and computer engineering curriculum has developed into emerging technology fields such as energy (power electronics, solar cells, smart grid), environment (sensors and sensor networks for environmental protection), and bioelectronics and biophotonics.

The graduate program in Electrical and Computer Engineering offers four degree options for graduate students to pursue advanced degrees. The graduate curricula includes a broad array of foundational material, ranging from computer architecture to stochastic process to digital signal processing that is intended to give graduate students the training needed to engage in state-of-the-art research. A broad selection of additional advanced classes provides students with training beneficial for software engineering positions in high-tech industries as well as in financial industries.
