Welcome to the Computer Engineering Division

In response to rapid growth and future plans, the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science is splitting into two departments: the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. These two new departments will provide a basis for further growth, while continuing interdisciplinary collaboration in research and education.

New websites and information will be up soon. In the meantime, information on this website is accurate. Applications for degree programs are unaffected by the new departmental structure.
