Electromagnetic waves can be used in electronic circuits, optical communications systems, medical imaging systems and wireless communications systems. Some areas our faculty focus on include:

  • Computational electromagnetics
  • Wave scattering and propagation
  • Interactions with complex media and novel materials
  • Electrodynamics
  • Antenna analysis and design
  • Scattering cross section and antenna measurements
  • Computer visualization, RF and microwave systems
  • MMIC, EMI, and EMC, and electronic packaging

The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science was created in the spring of 2015 to allow greater access to courses offered by both departments for undergraduate and graduate students in exciting collaborative research in fields.

We offer B.S. degrees in electrical engineering, computer science and computer engineering and graduate degrees (master's degrees and Ph.D.'s) in electrical engineering and computer science and engineering. EECS focuses on the convergence of technologies and disciplines to meet today’s industrial demands.
