High-tech surrounds us, profoundly impacting medicine, arts, sciences, business, law, social behavior, and beyond. Electrical engineering and computer science is at the heart of this modern society and drives intellectual property and wealth generation as well as job creation.
Thirty-five of the top 50 companies with most patents awarded in 2002 were Electrical engineering and computer science companies. In 2003, EECS generate almost $3 billion in wealth compared to slightly over $2 billion for the healthcare industry and continues to be the focus of job creation.
The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Case Western Reserve University is motivated by synergetic research thrusts exploring the intersections of bio-micro-info in the ever-changing world of technology. To achieve this goal, the department is organized into two divisions--Computer Science (CS), and Electrical, Computer, and Systems Engineering (ECSE)--and offers four related undergraduate and graduate degree programs, some of which are available online:
After graduation, many of our students continue that education at the finest graduate schools including MIT, GeorgiaTech, Cornell, and Ohio State. Others prefer to enter the job market. Our alumni can be found at many of the nation's top companies including Alltel, Epic Systems, General Electric, St. Jude Medical Center, Microsoft, Google, IBM, Accenture, American Electric Power, CWRU, Dell, Dominion East Ohio Gas, DuPont, Eaton Corporation, First Energy, Guidant, Lincoln Electric Company, Medtronic, NASA Glenn, PPG Industries, and Toyota.
