Mission Statement of the EECS Department

The mission of the EECS Department is to educate future engineers and scientists in the fields of electrical engineering and computer science; to contribute to the body of knowledge in the fields of electrical engineering and computer science; and to conduct research and contribute to the development of innovative solutions to address diverse technological and societal needs.

Academic Programs

Undergraduate

EECS Department offers two Baccalaureate degree programs:
The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Engineering (BSCSE)
The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE).
Both programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, http://www.abet.org/. The CSE program is also accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) of ABET, http://www.abet.org/. Details about the degree programs are available from the EECS webpages. For further questions, contact Dr. Richard Molyet, Undergraduate Program Director at richard.molyet@utoledo.edu

Graduate

EECS Department offers Masters degree in Electrical Engineering (thesis option as well as non-thesis option) and Masters degree in Engineering (thesis option as well as non-thesis option) with concentration in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE). Doctoral degrees are also offered in Engineering with concentration in Electrical Engineering (EE) as well as concentration in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE). Details about both the MS and PhD degrees are available from the EECS webpages. For further questions, contact Dr. Mansoor Alam, Graduate Program Director at mansoor.alam2@utoledo.edu
