Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering Dual Major


Return to: Colleges, Departments, and Programs

BS degree

Students interested in pursing a particularly challenging program of study may complete a double major in Computer Engineering and Electrical Engineering, meeting the obligations of both programs

To facilitate such a double major, the department has created a structured advising plan. To accomplish the program in four years, at least one summer must be devoted to academic study. As with individual majors, a co-op experience is available for qualified students in cooperation with regional industries.
