The curricula closely link technical fundamentals with team project building, business principles and societal issues. The programs foster a willingness to learn concepts and ideas from diverse disciplines both within and outside of electrical and computer engineering, as well as communications and leadership skills.
Both the undergraduate programs in computer engineering and electrical engineering are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc.
The Engineering Accreditation Commission can be contacted at the following address:
Advising is an important part of the registration process. All students must see their academic adviser before class registration for the following semester. The School of Engineering places an academic hold on the student’s record that can only be removed after meeting with their academic adviser. The adviser will assist students with choosing the appropriate classes to ensure that all prerequisites have been met.
As a student in the electrical or computer engineering program, refer to this page for the necessary advising forms. Once the forms have been completed, schedule an appointment with the academic adviser. Please stop by the ECE main office, 601 W. Main St., Room 203, if any questions arise.
VCU IEEE chapter
The Institute for Electrical and Electronic Engineers provides learning opportunities within the engineering sciences, research and technology. The goal of the IEEE education program is to ensure the growth of skill and knowledge in electricity-related technical professions and to foster individual commitment to continuing education among IEEE members, the engineering and scientific communities, and the general public.
