Prospective ECE Undergraduate Students

The innovative undergraduate ECE curriculum prepares students for exciting careers in industry, academia, and government. BU ECE alumni are at forefront of socially relevant fields, advancing technologies and working to improving disease diagnosis, solar panel efficiency, video surveillance capabilities, cloud performance and much more.

Degrees & Degree Options

Theory & Application

After establishing a strong engineering theory foundation, students enhance their understanding by developing technical skills. Electrical engineering (EE) students cultivate skills in electronics, electrophysics, electronics, signals and systems, and electromagnetics; while computer engineering (CE) students cultivate skills related to software design, computer networking, algorithms, operating systems, computer organization, logic design, microprocessors, and cloud computing.

Diverse Disciplines & Specialized Concentrations

EE subfields include communications, signal processing, control systems, solid-state devices, materials, photonics, circuit design, computer systems, and software. CE subfields include VLSI, networking, and software design. Specialized concentrations are offered to students interested in Energy Technologies and Environmental Engineering and Nanotechnologytwo of engineering’s most rapidly advancing fields. Learn more about these concentrations.

Senior Design seniors work on a small team of engineering students from various departments during a two-semester capstone design project. Teams produce hardware or software systems for real-world customers. Pictures, videos, and 2016 awards are available here.
