Future Students

Don Gruenbacher, Dept. HeadI would like to welcome all of the prospective students and their parents as they explore our programs in both computer engineering and electrical engineering. Our department, originally founded in 1899, has more than 400 undergraduate students seeking a degree in one or both of our programs that is served by more than 20 outstanding faculty. Both of the computer engineering and electrical engineering programs are the largest in the State of Kansas, and our graduates are highly sought after by industry, government laboratories, and other programs for advanced degrees in engineering, medicine, business, and law. Almost all current students obtain either an internship, COOP, or research experience prior to graduation.

One of our greatest strengths is the integration of extensive hands-on laboratory experiences throughout our programs. All of our students will have at least five laboratory-based courses in our department, and we feel these experiences provide outstanding preparation for our graduates to contribute immediately upon completing either of our programs. Areas of specialization are utilized in both programs to allow our students to tailor their degree to their specific interest.

In computer engineering the areas are:

  • Architecture and Design
  • Embedded Systems
  • Multimedia and Networking

In electrical engineering the areas are:

  • Bioengineering
  • Communication Systems and Signal Processing
  • Digital Electronics
  • Integrated Circuits and Devices
  • Power Systems

We encourage you to explore our department, ask questions and schedule an on-campus visit to find out more. We look forward to hearing from you.

George J. and Alice D. Fiedler Distinguished Chair in Electrical and Computer Engineering
