About

Electrical engineers and computer engineers work at the frontier of high technology and are involved in research, the creation of new ideas, and the design and development of new products, manufacturing, and marketing activities. This Electrical and Computer Engineering program is offered by The Ohio State University.

Overview

Electrical engineers find innovative ways to use electricity, electronic materials and electrical phenomena to improve people’s lives. Computer engineers design computer systems, both hardware and software, to create new technology and meet new societal needs.

The field of electrical engineering encompasses a very broad spectrum of technical areas, including computers and digital systems, electronics and integrated circuits, communications, systems and control, electromagnetics and electro-optics, energy conversion and power distribution, robotics, signal processing, solid state electronics, and photonics. This Electrical and Computer Engineering program is offered by The Ohio State University.

The field of computer engineering covers a wide range of topics including computer architecture, operating systems, communications, computer networks, robotics, artificial intelligence, supercomputers, computer-aided design and neural nets. 

Students interested in computing careers may pursue either electrical and computer engineering or computer science and engineering. These programs are not interchangeable—students should examine the curricular requirements for each major to determine which one meets their interests.

Possible careers

Electrical and computer engineers create innovative, practical solutions and work with other smart, inspiring people to invent, design and build technologies and products that matter. ECEs design high-profile technologies and products, including medical devices, tablet computers, smart phones, video games, wireless networks, 3D television and high-fidelity audio.

ECE graduates are heavily recruited by employers, including computer, aerospace and automotive companies, telephone and electric utilities, electronics manufacturers, and government agencies. Electrical and computer engineers have also become entrepreneurs, applying their training to new areas of service.

Some employers of electrical and computer engineering graduates include American Electric Power, ArcelorMittal, Capital One, Eaton, FirstEnergy Corp., General Motors, Honda, IBM Corp., Lockheed Martin, NBCUniversal, United Launch Alliance, U.S. Army, Verizon and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.

Programme Structure

Course Overview:

  • All engineering students have a similar first-year plan of study, the college core, that provides fundamental courses in math, science and engineering. 
  • In addition to the college core, engineering students also take select core courses, major courses and general education courses.
  • Electrical and computer engineering major courses provide students hands-on experience in photonics, electrical energy conversion, high voltage engineering, integrated circuit fabrication, microcontrollers, microprocessors, signal processing and many more topics.
