High-tech is redefining modern society

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. 

About the Department

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.  We bring together a spectrum of degree programs and research thrusts that ultimately lead to the enhancement of life. We strive for distinction through excellence, productivity, and innovation. We emphasize a student-centric, experiential learning environment that prepares capable professionals, effective teammates, and life-long learners.

To achieve these goals, the department is organized into two divisions—Computer Science (CS), and Electrical, Computer, and Systems Engineering (ECSE)—and offers five related undergraduate and graduate degree programs:  

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.
