Whether you are a current or prospective student, an alumnus, or someone who just wants to learn more about the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at CSU, this website will provide you with links to information about who we are, our degree programs, and our research activities.
Since 1923 the Fenn College of Engineering has provided high quality undergraduate and graduate engineering programs to students in Northeast Ohio and beyond. Then in 1964 the College served as the nucleus around which the State of Ohio established Cleveland State University with its six colleges.
Electrical and Computer Engineering is the largest of Fenn College’s six departments, and it offers two undergraduate degree programs (a BS in Electrical Engineering and a BS in Computer Engineering), two master’s degree programs (an MS in Electrical Engineering with an emphasis in either Electrical engineering or computer engineering, and an MS in Software Engineering), and a Doctoral Degree program.
Besides teaching and conducting research in the more traditional areas of communications, controls, power electronics, power systems, and digital systems, recent recruitment of faculty in the areas of computer engineering, software engineering, MEMs, and sensors has greatly expanded E&CE’s range of courses, degrees, and research activities. In addition to its nine research laboratories, the Department’s faculty play major roles as both leaders and researchers in the college-wide Center for Research in Electronics and Aerospace Technology (CREATE), as well as in the state-funded multi-university and multi-business $23 million-dollar Wright Center for Sensor Systems Engineering.
Academic programs in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering emphasize a blend of practical experience and academic achievement, and our students often have the opportunity to work on real problems in industry, in academic research, and at NASA Glenn Research Center. E&CE’s students come from within and beyond Northeast Ohio, and from many countries, thus collectively representing a rich mixture of cultures and languages. Graduates of the E&CE degree programs are frequently hired by prominent companies and government agencies such as Rockwell Automation, GE, Motorola, Microsoft, ABB, Qualcomm, and NASA.
We hope you will find this website useful and informative.
