Bachelor of Science

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Texas A&M University offers a Bachelor of Science degree option to its undergraduate students desiring to major in electrical engineering.

Electrical engineers design, develop, test and supervise the manufacture of sophisticated electrical and electronic systems such as: cell phones, iPods, digital TVs, medical imaging, smart appliances, automobiles and advanced satellite systems. Many electrical engineers also work in areas closely related to computers. Areas of specialization include: a) Wireless telecommunications, controls and signal processing, b) Electric power and power electronics, c) Analog, mix-signal integrated circuit design and VLSI systems, d) Electro-physics, optics, microwave and nano-engineering, e) Biomedical imaging, nano-bio systems and genomic signal processing.

We are continuously ranked in the top 20 in the nation by U.S. News and World Report. We have over 70 tenured/tenure track faculty and over 900 undergraduate students. The opportunities for undergraduate students to participate in research projects and study abroad programs and the ability to pursue a master's degree while earning their baccalaureate make joining our undergraduate program an excellent choice!
