Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Curriculum

There is no better way to serve the Army and the Nation than to earn an Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or Information Technology degree in the Department of EECS. The U.S. Army depends every day on a thousand information technologies at all levels from individual soldier to strategic decision maker. Leaders who understand these technologies and how to use them effectively are vital to our present and our future, in peace and in war.

Our best advice, though, is to stop by the department and discuss your thoughts and goals with one of our Academic Counselors. We are located on the first floor of Thayer Hall (South end of the building). You can also click below to send the senior academic counselor an email message:

  • Computer Science Counselor, COL Alexander Mentis
  • Electrical Engineering Counselor, Dr. Peter Hanlon
  • Information Technology Counselor, LTC Thomas Babbitt

Some facts and figures...

Our department is 71 great people with exceptionally diverse skills and backgrounds. Our classrooms see about 1,800 cadets per year. We operate 28 laboratories including computer, electronic, power, photonic, microwave, VLSI design, and other types, most of them seating 18 cadets, which is our maximum class size. We have a first rate technology infrastructure tied together by a network fast-approaching 100% gigabit speed. Our fabrication shop can build nearly anything, and we have great softball, basketball, and volleyball teams.
