Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at Syracuse University embraces a wide range of academic programs and research areas in Computer Engineering, Computer and Information Science, and Electrical Engineering. They are connected by the technologies they develop and the mathematical methods they use to explore the spectrum of computing and electrical systems. The computer is not only an area of study, but also a design tool permitting visual representation of mathematical models. Moreover, communication and control are of major importance in computing systems, while digital devices and components have become a dominant factor in designing electrical systems. Each of these academic programs offers degrees at the Bachelor of Science (BS), Master of Science (MS), and Philosophy Doctor (Ph.D.) levels.
The strength of our programs is attested to by the following facts:
- The flexibility of our programs which allows students to tailor their programs of study to match their career interests.
- Having the Computer Engineering, Computer and Information Science, and Electrical Engineering programs in the same department, provides students with the opportunity to take courses spanning multiple disciplines.
- Having educational programs in a department with a strong research component, assures that students will be exposed to courses covering the latest theories and technologies. Furthermore, interested students have the opportunity to engage in research projects during their studies at Syracuse University .
- Providing a variety of courses in the Systems and Information Assurance area allows students to have the opportunity to take courses in this area of growing importance at one of the very few universities which has been designated as a National Security Agency Center of Excellence.
- Preparing graduates who, in addition to excelling in their field of study, have also perfected their problem solving, critical thinking, leadership, and communication skills.
