Electrical & Computer Engineering and Computer Science Programs


The ECECS Department offers a wide variety of programs ranging from Associate's to Master's degrees in four basic disciplines. More information on each of the options, with links to more details, are listed below. 

Undergraduate Programs

Computer Engineering, B.S.
Blend together the areas of computer hardware design and software engineering.
Program details  Advisor: Bijan Karimi 
Computer Science, B.S., A.S.
Gain a well-rounded understanding of computer hardware, software and theory.
Program details  Advisor: Alice Fischer  
Electrical Engineering, B.S.
Analyze, design, and develop electrical and computer electronic systems.
Information Technology, B.S.
Network computer systems and design web applications for a changing work place.

Graduate Programs

Computer Science, M.S.
Extend your foundational knowledge and focus on a particular field in the computer science domain.
Program details  Advisor: David Eggert
Electrical Engineering, M.S.
Concentrate further in the areas of electrical systems or computer hardware design.
Program details  Advisor: Bijan Karimi
Network Systems, M.S.
Concentrate on learning setup, configuration and maintenance of small to large-scale heterogeneous networks.
Program details  Advisor: David Eggert

Five-year B.S./M.S. Programs

Students of good academic standing will be eligible to participate in a five-year program in which both a Bachelor's and a Master's degree are earned. Those students pursuing a B.S. in Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering can transition to the M.S. in Electrical Engineering, while those in the B.S. in Computer Science program can continue on to earn an M.S. in Computer Science, all with minimal paperwork and no application fee. Students take two graduate courses in their senior year that both fulfill their B.S. degree requirements and waive certain M.S. program requirements, so that they can graduate with both degrees in five years. Students are encouraged to speak with their academic advisors for details.
Double Majors

In order to increase a student's employment potential, a double major may be considered. Disciplines that have similar cores, such as Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering, lend themselves to being achieved at the same time. We also encourage students to consider combining a degree in the ECECS department with one elsewhere on campus. Students interested in such a plan should inform their academic advisors of their intent soon after matriculating at UNH.

Another way to broaden your perspective, is to earn a minor (typically six or seven courses) in addition to your intended major. Many of the bachelor's programs in the ECECS department have electives designed for such a purpose. We also encourage students from other disciplines to pursue minors in the areas the department has to offer: Computer Engineering , Computer Science , Electrical Engineering and Information Technology .

As a final option, we offer a specialized certificate program that allows a student to focus on computer programming, without pursuing a formal degree.
