Earn a degree in electrical and computer engineering, and you’ll have the tools you need to create a faster smartphone, a thinner laptop, even a more powerful automotive navigation system. Electrical and computer engineers design and build the gadgets we use everyday, as well as the computer hardware within larger systems like airplanes and robotic assembly lines. A creative, hands-on discipline with a strong math component, electrical and computer engineering students learn to work with controls, computer systems, telecommunications, fiber optics, remote sensors, circuits and more.

At Wayne State's College of Engineering, you'll learn from nationally renowned faculty experts and benefit from our High Impact Practices of Student Success: team-based learning, global perspective, undergraduate research, internships and co-ops, and community service.
