Undergraduate Program (BSEE, BSCpE)
Electrical and Computer Engineers build and program the computers that run the world. Your cell phones, ipods, video games and all your high-tech gadgets were made possible by electrical and computer engineers. But our reach extends much further, impacting information processing, energy and electronics at scales ranging from nanotechnology to electrical grids spanning thousands of miles. Electrical and Computer Engineers are building devices that measure everything from single neurons in the brain to networks of millions of users on the internet.
An undergraduate degree in electrical or computer engineering from UF can allow you to pursue a job in almost any industry you can think of. After all, nearly everyone uses computers, electricity and electrical devices, so industries demand skilled professionals to build, repair, and improve these devices. Many students use an ECE degree as a stepping stone to pursuing graduate degrees in law, medicine, business and engineering.
