The online Bachelor of Science in Electrical & Computer Engineering program prepares students to be in the communications center between hardware and software. The curriculum focuses on the theories, principles, and practices of traditional electrical engineering and mathematics and applies them to the design of computers and computer-based devices. Students also study the design and development of digital hardware systems and the software that enables that hardware, along with how both users and other hardware interact with those systems. The central focus is on embedded systems that rely on hardware and software working together, such as cellphones, digital audio players, digital video recorders, alarm systems, x-ray machines, and laser surgical tools, where students will use analytical thinking and design skills to integrate devices.
