Reflecting its wide array of research and teaching in the engineering of renewable and sustainable energy systems, the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is officially changing its name to the Department of Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering.
ECEE faculty and students are helping to advance the technologies used in solar photovoltaic systems, wind energy controls, power conversion and management, energy-efficient lighting, hybrid/electric vehicles, and energy storage.
The department hopes to introduce a new undergraduate degree in electrical and energy engineering in the near future. If approved, it will become the department's third degree offering at the undergraduate level. Students now can pursue a degree either in electrical engineering or in electrical and computer engineering.
