Focus Areas

ECE students select a focus area (FA) to personalize their curriculum and help prepare them for the type of job or research area they want to pursue. Through careful selection it is possible to earn minors in mathematics, computer science, physics, chemistry, business, and many other liberal arts and sciences subjects, without taking any courses beyond those required for the electrical engineering degree. Each EE FA requires the students to take five lower-level courses in either the electrical (EEe) or the computer (EEc) interests. Interest area courses are designed to prepare students for their FA course work. Students may design their own FA in consultation with their advisor, or pursue any of the suggested FA listed below.
