Department Overview


Morgan State University is fully accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. The Electrical Engineering program was founded in September, 1984
and is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).


The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering provides its students the opportunity to apply mathematical and physical concepts to engineering problems early in the curriculum, through laboratory and design experiences. The Department has
been following the philosophy of design across the curriculum for some time. In addition to the strong design experience integrated throughout the required courses, the electives offer
students the opportunity to enhance their skills with additional open-ended problem solving. These problems are broad-based, incorporating knowledge from specialty areas of communications systems, signal processing, microwave systems, solid state electronics, controls and automation, and computer engineering. The computer engineering emphasis is a special component of the electrical engineering (EE) program, where the Department offers a concentration in this area within its EE program. This rounds out the program by providing the necessary tools to meet the demands of the information age.


The objectives of the Department are consonant with those of the School of Engineering. In striving to develop a program of the highest quality, the program seeks to instill in its students the confidence and competence required to meet the challenges associated with careers in electrical and computer engineering. The department is guided by its need to prepare students to be effective engineers at the time of graduation, as well as its
need to produce graduates who within a few years of graduation can attain the following objectives:

  1. Remain effective in their employment in engineering and other professional career fields;
  2. Facilitate innovation and synthesis of new products and services, as well as improve existing products, in a global context;
  3. Are leaders and/or major contributors in their profession, community and other organizations;
  4. Continue the learning process throughout their careers;
  5. Provide service to their profession and the community-at-large;


The ECE program outcomes serves as specific guidelines and standards of the core knowledge, skills and abilities, that students are expected to achieve by the time of graduation. The outcomes also indicate the minimum standards of achievement for
students matriculating through the program. The program outcomes are closely aligned with the guidelines of the Accreditation Board for Engineering Technology (ABET), for accredited engineering programs. Graduates from the electrical and computer engineering
department at Morgan State University will demonstrate:

(a) an ability to apply 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 a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
(d) an ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
(e) an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
(f) an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
(g) an ability to communicate effectively through oral and written communications
(h) the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global and societal context
(i) a recognition of the need for, and the ability to engage in life-long learning
(j) a knowledge of contemporary engineering issues
(k) an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
