Welcome to ECE at UCF

The ECE’s vision is to offer the best undergraduate education in electrical and computer engineering, to achieve national and international prominence in selected areas of graduate study and research, and to foster partnerships and contribute to technological and economical advances in the State of Florida, the nation, and the world.

Our undergraduate curricula lead to the degree of Bachelor of Science in either Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering, and they are designed to provide students with a solid background in mathematics, physical sciences, electrical and computer engineering. A wide range of program options are available including communications, control systems, signal processing, computer architecture and reconfigurable hardware, electromagnetics and optics, and semiconductor devices and applications.

Chair’s Message


The Department of ECE has moved to remote operations for summer 2020. Since phones may be unavailable during this time, please contact Faculty and Staff via email.   E-mail addresses are found under the ‘People’ tab of the website.

For any general undergraduate or graduate advising, e-mail contact information is listed below.


Mission & Objectives

The mission of the ECE Department is to educate undergraduate and graduate students to become highly skilled in the principles and practices of computer engineering (CpE) and electrical engineering (EE) and to produce electrical and computer engineers that meet today’s market needs and to educate and provide the opportunity for Masters and Ph.D. graduates to conduct scientific research in high tech and state-of-the-art research topics.
