With the help of 43 full-time faculty members and 12 staff, our department is committed to provide high quality educational programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels, in an environment fostering technological, economic, and social growth. Our current total enrollment is approximately 1850 students, including 1300 undergraduate and 550 graduate students.

The EECS Department offers 5-year Cooperative Education (co-op) undergraduate degree programs, including the following:

  • BS in Computer Engineering
  • BS in Computer Science
  • BS in Electrical Engineering
  • BS in Electrical Engineering Technology.

Students in EECS can also earn both the bachelor’s and master’s degrees in five years by completing an accelerated degree program (ACCEND program), with a choice of Master of Business Administration (MBA), Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction (MEd), Master of Engineering (MEng), or Master of Science in Engineering or Computer Science (MS). Our students can also enroll in eight different engineering related minors and many more certificates/minors via other University colleges and programs.

In 2013, the College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) at UC started the Joint Engineering Co-op Institute (JCI) between the University of Cincinnati (UC) and Chongqing University (CQU) of China.

EECS Graduate Degree Programs include the following:

  • MS in Electrical Engineering
  • MS in Computer Engineering
  • MS in Computer Science
  • PhD in Computer Science & Engineering
  • PhD in Electrical Engineering
  • Master of Engineering (MEng) in Electrical Engineering
  • MEng in Computer Engineering
  • MEng in Computer Science.

Our faculty have expertise in a wide range of disciplines; we have hired 11 new faculty in the last 5 years and plan to continue growing at the same rate over the next 5 years. The range of expertise of our faculty includes: Advanced Electronics Materials, Devices, Microsystems, and MEMS; Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning; Bioelectronic Materials, Devices, and BioMEMS; Bioinformatics; Biomedical Signal Processing; Communications Systems; Computer Networks; Computer Science Algorithms and Theory; Computer Systems; Computer Vision; Control Systems; Cyber Security; Data & Information Science; Deep Learning; Electrical Engineering Systems; Embedded/Wearable Systems; High Performance Computing; Nanoelectronic Materials and Devices; Nanotechnology; Natural Language Processing; Novel Electric Machines; Parallel and Distributed Computing; Photonics Materials and Devices; Polymers; Privacy: Robotics and Sensors; Sensor Networks for Various Applications; Software Engineering; Systems Engineering; Topologically Disordered Solids, Materials and Devices; VLSI Design & Test; and RF, Wireless and Mobile Communications and Systems.

As you plan your future, whether as an undergraduate or graduate student, as an post-doctoral fellow, an adjunct professor or as a tenure-track professor, we hope you will consider the EECS Department at UC as your institution of choice to launch a productive career.
