The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers a dual degree in Computer Engineering and Electrical Engineering for those students that wish to pursue both degrees. Students will complete all of the requirements for both the BSCmpE and BSEE programs.
Our students, while drawn from diverse backgrounds, are all extremely able and committed to learning. Purdue University Fort Wayne delivers an exceptional educational experience to engineering students, encouraging collaboration and teamwork throughout the curriculum.
Student Learning Outcomes:
As a framework for the continuous improvement policy, the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering has adopted a set of program educational objectives that describe the anticipated accomplishments of our graduates 3 - 5 years after graduation.
The ECE department’s program educational objectives are to produce graduates who:
- Function and communicate effective to solve technical problems
- Advance professionally to roles of greater engineering responsibilities and/or by transitioning into leadership positions in business, government, and/or education
- Participate in life-long learning through the successful completion of advanced degree(s) professional development, and/or engineering certification(s)/licensure
- Demonstrate a commitment to community by applying technical skills and knowledge to support various service activities
The graduates from the dual BSCmpE/BSEE program will demonstrate that they have:
a. An ability to apply a knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering
b. An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
c. An ability to design electrical and computer systems, components, or processes to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health & safety, manufacturability and sustainability
d. An ability to function as a team member on engineering projects, laboratory experiments, and/or multidisciplinary activities
e. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
f. An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
g. An ability to communicate effectively
h. The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
i. A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in, life-long learning
j. A broad knowledge of contemporary issues
k. An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern tools necessary for engineering practice
- Both the Computer Engineering degree program and the Electrical Engineering degree program are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
- The Dual BSCmpE/BSEE program is delivered primarily through on-campus courses; however, some of the required General Education courses are available as hybrid and/or on-line courses and those can be used to satisfy the program requirements.
Declaring this Dual Major:
Students interested in declaring a dual Computer Engineering/Electrical Engineering major can do so in one of two ways:
- If the student is an ECE student already actively enrolled in one of the two programs, they simply need to speak with their assigned academic advisor about adding the other program as their second major
- If the student is not a current ECE student, they will need to speak with an ECE faculty advisor, who will determine that the student has the required math and chemistry background to begin our programs
In order to start in the Dual BSCmpE/BSEE program, a student must meet the following criteria:
- Math Placement at or above MA 15400
- Have taken CHM 11100 or 1 year of high school chemistry in the last five (5) years
