Undergraduate Degrees Offered at ECE
Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering: This undergraduate degree program is built around a strong basic core of mathematics, physics, and engineering science. These fundamentals are followed by intermediate courses in electrical engineering topics such as signal processing, digital design, circuit analysis, microelectronic circuits, and electromagnetics. Teamwork, communication skills, and an interdisciplinary approach to problem solving are integrated into the senior elective sequence, including a senior design seminar and capstone design course.
Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering: This undergraduate degree program is designed to provide students with a strong background in mathematics, physics, and engineering science. The curriculum includes courses in computer architecture and operating systems, advanced digital design, electromagnetics and microelectronic circuits, and advanced digital design. Courses throughout the program, especially those in the junior and senior years, emphasize an open-ended, design-oriented approach to solving engineering problems. Teamwork, communication skills, and an interdisciplinary approach to problem solving are integrated into the senior, computer engineering design courses.
Joint B.S./M.S. Degree: This program allows students to receive either the bachelor of science in electrical engineering or bachelor of science in computer engineering and a master's degree in electrical and computer engineering within a five-year time frame.

Special Programs/Degree Designations
The undergraduate curriculum is enriched by many special programs that allow students to gain valuable experience, perform research with Georgia Tech faculty, and broaden their cultural horizons.
- Georgia Tech's Cooperative Education Program allows students to alternate semesters of academic study with semesters of paid work experience. Graduating students who participate in this program receive a co-op degree designation on their diplomas.
- International Plan Designator, a new degree designation, offers students an opportunity to incorporate international experiences into their undergraduate education.
- Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program in ECE allows ECE students to collaborate with faculty on research projects, not only providing great hands-on experience, but course credit as well.
- Undergraduate Research Opportunities at Georgia Tech is a resource for many different undergraduate research funding programs at Georgia Tech, including the President’s Undergraduate Research Awards Program.
