Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
An education in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering will give you career versatility and the skills and expertise to create the innovations that will transform the 21st century. At Western New England University, we educate practitioners. Our hands-on curriculum allows you to apply the theory you learn in the classroom in our modern labs, starting in your very first year.
The department oversees the following programs:
- BS in Electrical Engineering
- BS in Computer Engineering
- MS in Electrical Engineering
- Five-year BS/MS in Electrical Engineering
Students may also pursue the Six-year Engineering/Law program.

Vision and Mission
The Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering majors at Western New England University will become nationally recognized for graduating students that have experienced putting theory into practice and are also capable of succeeding in advanced studies.
The mission of the Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering majors is to provide students with a supportive environment that facilitates learning to solve problems in electrical and computer engineering. The Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering majors are committed to excellence in student learning. Graduates of the majors will be problem solvers, able to apply engineering principles to electrical and computer systems. The faculty and staff of both majors use their background in teaching, research, and industry to prepare students to be successful as they move into the workforce or graduate school.
Program leading to BS in Electrical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.
Program leading to BS in Computer Engineering is following the application process for accreditation as outlined by ABET.
