Duke’s Department of Electrical and Computer engineering offers an ABET accredited Bachelor of Science in engineering emphasizing analytical thinking, problem solving, and technology, and each fosters the development of ethical leadership, communication, and teamwork skills. The Duke program provides more opportunities and is less restrictive than many other ECE programs in the United States. Students use this flexibility to expand their personal horizons or to explore a personal interest more deeply.
Students have the option to pursue five different areas of concentration, depending on personal interests. Each study track emphasizes the acquisition, processing, control, transmission, and application of information and energy by what are fundamentally electrical or electromagnetic means. All encompass high-level computer languages (software) that facilitate the convenient and efficient application of technology (hardware) to the solution of useful problems. They provide a firm foundation for future technical accomplishment and for effective problem solving in the diverse nominally non-technical fields that many of our graduates pursue.
