Electrical & Computer Engineering

As a department of the University of Denver, we are well integrated into a community and region that offers many different professional and personal opportunities for our students. Through our own initiatives and joint programs with other units of the University, we offer unique options to enhance the education we provide with a solid background in business and the entrepreneurial nature of engineering projects and companies.

The educational and research philosophy of the Electrical & Computer Engineering Department recognizes the demands of the global economy, the new dynamics of the world market, cultural differences and diversity, and the need for knowledge integration. Our goals embrace the challenges of the globalization era we live in, to prepare our students for an engineering career in the ever-changing world.

Tau Beta Pi

Tau Beta Pi is the only engineering honor society representing the entire engineering profession. It is the nation's second-oldest honor society, founded at Lehigh University in 1885 to mark in a fitting manner those who have conferred honor upon their Alma Mater by distinguished scholarship and exemplary character as students in engineering, or by their attainments as alumni in the field of engineering, and to foster a spirit of liberal culture in engineering colleges.
