The field of electrical and computer engineering is revolutionizing technology and impacting diverse areas such as agriculture, environmental monitoring, forestry, health care, renewable energy and robotics. Oregon State offers several focus areas shown on the tabs below.

The ECE curriculum includes hand-on learning in which students to apply their knowledge of electrical and computer engineering to create their own robot. In an introductory class, students build a TekBot and as they progress through the program they add more functions to their robot.

Adding a CS minor: A minor in computer science can be easily added to an ECE major. If planned correctly, ECE students can obtain their CS minor with one extra CS course that does not go toward their ECE major. See more details on the CS minor option page.

Note: All engineering programs require admittance to pro school program, to review requirements for pro-school visit the COE advising page.
