Boston University’s Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) students gain the basic skills that enable them to make an impact on today’s technologies – computers, cell phones, gaming consoles, fighter jet electronics, space probes, and more. Working on the design, manufacturing and maintenance of these technologies requires a broad range of skills, including math, physics, programming, semiconductor modeling, embedded system design, and statistical signal processing. Your education in ECE@BU will allow you to solve tomorrow’s challenges.
To prepare you, our ECE program offers an innovative curriculum with a wide range of courses that develop skills essential for solving engineering challenges of the 21st century. Your interdisciplinary experience will include research across our three main areas – Computer Engineering, Electro-Physics, and Information Sciences and Systems.
By studying ECE, you’ll gain firsthand experience working on entrepreneurial projects, develop a global perspective, and think collaboratively on teams. You’ll begin your professional training as early as your first semester when you’ll have numerous opportunities to research with our renowned faculty. Your experience will be capped off with a senior design project, during which teams (occasionally individuals) design and present solutions for the engineering problems of real clients and learn what it’s like to work as an engineer. And if you enjoy travel and are curious about engineering elsewhere, we offer numerous study abroad programs.
We prepare you to become an expert, innovator and leader while providing you with a strong foundation in math, science and the humanities. At BU, you will be gaining experience working in state-of-the-art labs while living in one of the world’s greatest regions for technology, innovation and education.
