Why study Electrical and Computer Engineering?

Future Leaders

We believe that the rigor and depth of an EE or CpE education combined with a broad study of the liberal arts provides an excellent background for students who wish to enter professions such as medicine, law, business administration as well as engineering itself.

Well-Rounded Education

Through our international component, emphasis on undergraduate research, flexible curriculum, and personal attention given to each student, we educate well-rounded members of society who are prepared to excel in an increasingly multicultural and technological world.

Electrical and Computer Engineering Curriculum

Core Courses

All students in our ABET-accredited Electrical Engineering (EE) and Computer Engineering (CpE) programs take a sequence of required core courses in math, science, and engineering with weekly hands-on laboratories.

Technical electives

Students can learn about a vast array of topics such as nanotechnology, medical imaging systems, signal processing, embedded systems, computer networking, and neural networks.

Capstone Design Project

During their senior year, students work on a project in small teams (or individually) and alongside a faculty member.

Strong Faculty-Student Interaction

Teaching Excellence

Our focus solely on undergraduate education differentiates us from larger research institutions. Close faculty-student interaction is paramount to the success of our programs. All courses are taught by Union College faculty members and most classes have fewer than twenty students.

Research & Design Projects

Faculty work closely with students in laboratories and supervise individual senior projects where students apply their skills and creativity to their own design project. Numerous opportunities exist for students to perform cutting-edge research with ECE faculty.
