Wired for Success.
The University of Dayton's undergraduate electrical engineering program is among the best in the country. With cutting-edge curriculum and facilities, we combine learning with doing and theory with practice — preparation that results in your success. We have programs that focus on digital and image processing, robotics control, micro-electronics, wide-area surveillance as well as a new lab for your use that is furnished with the latest robotics equipment.
About our Undergraduate Electrical Engineering Program.
Our electrical engineering curriculum is designed to provide an understanding of basic electrical engineering principles with emphasis on the development of problem solving skills. An extensive laboratory experience is integrated with the classroom work to ensure that the student develops a working knowledge of the fundamentals. Upper level courses integrate the knowledge base with current technology and computational tools resulting in a graduate capable of making a contribution to the engineering profession by either entering the work force or pursuing a graduate education.
Our undergraduate electrical engineering program focuses on the development of electrical devices, integrated circuits, microelectronic devices, electronics, electromagnetics, electro-optics, signal processing, computer systems, networks, communication and control systems.
Our state-of-the-art laboratories and computing facilities give you access to hands-on learning. In combination with the concepts you cover in your courses, you have hands-on practice in the Microfabrication Lab, Optical Information Processing Lab, Photonics Lab, Signal Processing Lab, Systems and Control Research Lab, Communications Networks Lab, Advanced Digital Design Laboratories, Opto-Electronics Devices Lab, HAM-Radio Lab, Ultraviolet Laser Lithography Lab, and Computational Electromagnetic Lab.
We are proud to be one of the first in the country to introduce a Bachelor's Plus Master's program that attracts and retains top-notch students. By taking two approved graduate courses in your senior year in place of non-design technical electives, it is possible to complete the master's degree in as little time as one additional academic year. This program is available to undergraduate electrical and computer engineering majors.
Cooperative Education and Service-Learning
Through internships, co-ops, study abroad and service-learning opportunities, you can expand your hands-on learning to the real world and gain invaluable experience in your field. About one-half of our students participate in our Cooperative Education program with placements in local and national companies such as AO Smith, Honda, Toyota, Fujitec, Battelle, YSI, LexisNexis and Naval Research Laboratories. In addition, many of our students take advantage of our ETHOS program and benefit from their service-learning experiences.
With a low 15:1 student-teacher ratio, you have close interaction with the Department's 15 full-time and nine part-time faculty. You'll experience one-on-one assistance with transitioning, academic advising and growth as an engineering professional.
You may also work with faculty in their areas of interest. Augmented with joint faculty from the electro-optics program, our electrical and computer engineering faculty are world-renowned teachers and researchers who have edited textbooks, published extensively in national and international journals and conferences, and are fellows in their respective professional organizations. Extensive research opportunities with the University of Dayton Research Institute and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base give you hands-on research experience as an undergraduate student.
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is uniquely placed to add to our student's financial aid. Through scholarships funded from a $2 million MUMMA Endowment Fund and other foundations, we support both undergraduate and graduate students and supplement University and School of Engineering awards.Top
