Welcome to the
ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING & COMPUTER SCIENCE DEPARTMENT
The Electrical Engineering & Computer Science (EECS) Department at the University of Missouri College of Engineering launched in 2017 to combine the academic and research endeavors of the Electrical & Computer Engineering Department and the Computer Science Department into a driven, cohesive department focused on providing students with an excellent academic experience and making the next research breakthrough.
The department is made of three divisions: computer engineering, computer science and electrical engineering. Read about each of the three divisions below:
Computer engineers design hardware and computer systems and develop software. Their interests include intelligent systems, computer design and architecture, embedded systems such as cell phones and digital cameras, and other areas related to computer systems.
With electrical engineering, MU’s ABET-accredited program is now home to more than 300 undergraduate students and almost 150 graduate students.
With foundations covered in algorithms, compilers, computational theories, database, networking, operating systems, programming languages and software engineering, the undergraduate and graduate programs are integrated over many application areas such as Big Data Analytics, cyber-security, smartphone applications, mobile and sensor networks, information management systems, bioinformatics and computational biology and medical informatics.
MU’s ABET-accredited Computer Science program currently has more than 350 undergraduate students.
Electrical engineering at MU was established in 1884 — the first electrical engineering program in the nation. Electrical Engineers are involved in electrical power generation, communication systems, instrumentation, circuit design and microprocessor design. Global energy problems and rapid advances in microelectronics ensure a constant demand for electrical engineers.
With computer engineering, this ABET-accredited program is now home to more than 300 undergraduate students and almost 150 graduate student.
Research encompasses all levels of the academic experience at MU Engineering. Undergraduate and graduate students pair with EECS faculty and full-time researchers to find the newest breakthroughs. Through our many research centers, signature programs and laboratories, students are able to join a research project that exactly fits their desired area of expertise.
