Electrical & Computer Engineering

Welcome to Electrical and Computer Engineering at Rowan

Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Rowan is a modern, innovative, hands-on project-based program, where we train and graduate proficient engineers who will be successful in solving not only today’s problems, but also tomorrow’s evolving and emerging engineering challenges. Through an innovative curricular structure that includes such unique elements as Engineering Clinics and Clinic Consulting in addition to core courses as well as a wide spectrum of technical electives on emerging topics, the department instills six core qualities that define and distinguish Rowan ECE graduates to be

agile · contemporary · communicative · entrepreneurial · transdisciplinary · competent

Rowan ECE Receives "Most Innovative Program" Award 


Rowan ECE is recognized as the winner of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department Heads Association (ECEDHA) 2018 Innovative Program Award, recognizing the transformative nature of our Engineering Clinics and ECE Clinic Consultant in shaping the future of ECE education. ECEDHA describes the Innovative Program Award as follows:

This award is given to individual(s) or department(s) that has (have) created, implemented, and sustained the implementation of a successful innovative program and possibly assisted in the implementation of that program at other institutions. A successful program is one that has stood the test of time (i.e., formal integration into a program of study) and has produced measurable improvements in the quality of the electrical and computer education received by a significant number of students at one or more institutions.

The award was presented during ECEDHA's annual conference and ECE Expo in March 2018. We are truly honored by this recognition, as it is made by the Department Heads of other ECE Departments across the nation.
