The faculty of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science endeavor to train the next generation of top-quality engineers, researchers, and scientests. With a combination of successful, funded research and top-level industrial experience, EECS professors bridge the gap between theory and practice, creating an environment in which students can develop the requisite skills demanded by the best employers.
The Average Entry Level Salary for Electrical Engineers, Computer Engineers, and Computer Science graduate are $68,000, $69,000, and $66,000 respectively.
Robotics, computer vision, power, signal processing, & controls artificial intelligence, machine learning, high performance computing, cybersecurity, human centered computing, & augmented/virtual reality
Recently secured external grants provide both graduate and undergraduate EECS Students the opportunity to take part in rapidly growing technology fields such as AI/ML, power, and HPC. Rigorous instruction, small class sizes, and extremely competitive tuition guarantee an accessible, challenging and rewarding experience in EECS.
There are more software jobs than can be filled with current graduates, with this remaining true for the foreseeable future. These are high-paying jobs housed in rich working environments. Software-related work is a highly creative endeavor and interesting design problems arise in every project. The creative aspect of the work is stimulating and can sustain an entire career. Traditional areas of computer science such as graphics, software engineering, networks, databases, multimedia, and artificial intelligence remain strong, with job growth being driven by advances in robotics and the fundamental impact of computer science in nearly every industry. There are many challenging problems remaining for computer scientists to solve.
