The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of Puerto Rico Mayagüez, offers undergraduate and graduate degrees for electrical engineering, and computer engineering. Electrical engineering has five concentration areas: namely, Control Systems, Communications/Digital Signal Processing, RF and Remote Sensing, Electronics, and Power Systems. Computer engineering has three areas of specialization: Computing Systems, Digital Signal Processing, and Hardware and Embedded Systems.
Both undergraduate programs are offered in a broad breadth curriculum through a five-year program. Both are fully accredited by the ABET. Our Electrical Engineering program was created in 1928, and has been accredited since 1960. The Computer Engineering program started in 1980, and has been accredited since 1994.
Currently, we also offer the Masters in Sciences in Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Masters in Electrical and Computer Engineering.
In addition, the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers a Ph.D. degree since 2016 with emphasis in Power Engineering, Signals and Systems, RF Systems and Microwave Remote Sensing, and Electronics. Our research facilities are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment including 14 laboratories, groups and centers, more than 40 graduate-level courses, 37 faculty members, about 1,400 undergraduate students and near 100 graduated students. It has partaken in several NSF Engineering Research Centers, and our research faculty has received several NSF CAREER Awards as well as national and international recognition. The ECE Department is committed to provide a balanced education to their students including academics, research, and community service.
