Prospective Students

The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) offers a broad range of fundamental research areas in electrical engineering, computer engineering and computer science. From designing and integrating electronic and electrical systems in diverse industries such as defense, communications, transportation, manufacturing, health care, construction, power/energy, and entertainment to testing and analyzing circuit, devices, and systems to studying data structures, programming languages, and computer systems in detail, EECS offers its students real-world focused research. Progress in electrical engineering and computer science continues to be one of the critical factors driving our well being in the 21st century. It will pervade all aspects of our life including the way we live, work, learn and are entertained.

The School houses the departments of electrical engineering and computer science engineering and provides an integrated curriculum for its students who will have greater access to classes across the EECS spectrum. It also offers an improved collaboration in interdisciplinary research for undergraduates, graduates and our faculty in exciting collaborative research fields such as robotics, computer vision, cyber physical systems, machine learning and embedded systems.

Being a Penn State Engineering student takes being the best to the next level. Our programs are consistently ranked among the best in the country.



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 fields.

We offer B.S. degrees in electrical engineering, computer science, computer engineering and data science 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.
