Undergraduate Programs


The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science offers programs leading to B.S. degrees in:

The B.S. degree programs in Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Systems and Control Engineering are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

The B.S. degree program in Computer Science is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET.

Students are expected to complete a bachelor’s degree in a timely fashion and will ordinarily be subject to the degree requirements in place at the time of matriculation at Case Western Reserve University, although they may chose to update their requirements to those included in a later General Bulletin. However, students are not allowed to pick some degree requirements from one program and some from another. Specific problem situations, such as a required course of a non-current program no longer being offered, will be handled on a case by case/petition basis requiring department and Office of Undergraduate Studies approval.

Mission Statement

The educational mission of the department is to graduate students who have fundamental technical knowledge of their profession and the requisite technical breadth and communications skills to become leaders in creating the new techniques and technologies which will advance the general field of electrical engineering and computer science.

Laboratory and Research Experience

Many courses have integral or associated laboratories in which students gain “hands-on” experience with electrical engineering, computer engineering, systems and control engineering, and computer science principles. Students have ready access to the teaching laboratory facilities and are encouraged to use them during nonscheduled hours in addition to the regularly scheduled laboratory sessions. Opportunities also exist for undergraduate student participation in the wide spectrum of research projects being conducted in the department.

Cooperative Education Program

There are many excellent Cooperative Education (co-op) opportunities for all EECS majors. A co-op student does one or two co-op assignments in industry or government. The length of each assignment is a semester plus a summer which is enough time for the student to complete a significant computing project. Learn more about co-op.


We offer an integrated B.S./M.S. program which allows a student to complete both the Bachelor of Science in Engineering and Master of Science degrees within five years.
