Welcome to the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE). The Department offers four degree programs: a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering, a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering and a Doctor of Philosophy in Electrical Engineering. The Department has seventeen faculty members and over 330 undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students.  ECE is one of the largest departments in the Roy G. Perry College of Engineering as measured by the

number of students, faculty, and the amount of sponsored projects. The Department provides the highest level of quality education to our students.

The curricula have been designed to prepare students for successful professional careers in electrical or computer engineering. Our graduates can be found all over the world. They are productive and hold leadership positions in industry, academia and research laboratories. Our faculty members are knowledgeable in their fields of study, and are authors of engineering books. There are several faculty members that have United States patents. Our faculty members are involved in various research projects. Six research centers support the areas of research within the Department are: (1) the Center of Excellence in Research and Education for Big Military Data Intelligence (CREDIT), (2) the Center for Computational Systems Biology at Prairie View A&M University (CCSB@PVAMU), (3) the Center for Digital Battlefield Communications (CEBCOM),  (4) The Center of Excellence for Communication Systems Technology Research (CECSTR), (5) the Center for Radiation Engineering and Science for Space Exploration (CRESSE), (6) the Center for Information Communication and Cyber Security (ICCS) Research and Education and (6) the Center for Center for Advancing Innovations in Smart Microgrid . If you are a prospective undergraduate or graduate student in Electrical and Computer Engineering, I advise you to peruse our website to learn more about the Department. We always welcome new and talented students to our program.
