I would like to welcome all prospective students, current students, alumni, and friends to the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department. Our department offers three Bachelor of Science degrees: Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, and Computer Science. We offer three Master of Science degrees: Electrical Engineering, Computer Networking, and Computer Science. We also offer a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Electrical Engineering.

Our undergraduate degree programs aim to prepare our students for both graduate school and the engineering work place for many years to come. As part of the College of Engineering Engineer of 2020 program, all undergraduate students must complete, in addition to their required course load, three of the following six activities:

1. Undergraduate Research
2. Cooperative Education or Internship
3. Global Learning or Study Abroad
4. Service Learning
5. Leadership
6. Multidisciplinary Education

As Wichita State is located in the largest city in Kansas, our students have numerous opportunities to engage in cooperative education or an internship while they are going to school. Our electronics laboratories and power laboratories have recently been updated with state of the art equipment.

We have one of the few MS in Computer Networking degrees in the country. In addition to our Routing and Switching Laboratories, we have recently introduced a new Wireless Teaching Laboratory. Many of our graduate and undergraduate students work on campus at the CISCO Technical Research Center. In addition to computer networking, students study and conduct state of the art research in many areas including the following: control systems, energy systems, communications and signal processing, databases, quantum systems, and algorithms.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our office.
