Name change reflects the demands of today's electrical and computer engineering fields
The Department of Electrical Engineering has been renamed the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and now offers degree plans in both electrical engineering and its newest undergraduate program, electrical and computer engineering.
The changes follow the addition last fall of a doctorate in computer engineering, a joint degree plan administered by the Tandy School of Computer Science and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Kaveh Ashenayi, chair of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, says the department name change and new degrees reflect a growing local, regional and national employer demand for computer engineers.
