The College of Engineering - Electrical & Computer Engineering

B.S. In Electrical and Computer Engineering

The ECE Program provides a strategic balance of depth and breadth in topics ap-propriate to the areas of Electrical and Computer Engineering as articulated by the Institute for Electrical and Electronic Engineering (IEEE) in their program criteria developed with the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET: www.abet.org). Our program provides a foundation of mathematics, sciences, and the humanities, combined with engineering topics. However, what sets Rowan ECE program apart is its hands-on, real world project-based technical curriculum, where every class includes laboratory component, with its hallmark Engineering Clinics.


Electrical & Computer Engineering Curriculum:

The BS in ECE program consists of 128 credit, and consists of the following com-ponents:

Combined BS In Engineering/MBA Program:

Engineering students who plan to pursue a career in business should consider the combined degree program for obtaining a BS in Engineering and an MBA (Master of Business Administration). Students wishing to pursue the combined BS/MBA degree have several options, and may be able to complete the MBA pro-gram in one year and one summer, depending on when the student wants to start the program.

Completion of foundation courses: Applicants to the MBA program must have completed appropriate courses in mathematics, economics and various business areas. Some of these courses can be taken as part of the undergraduate engi-neering coursework while others can be taken during summers. Planning is the key: Once admitted into the Combined Program, students are assigned an advisor from the College of Engineering to assist them in designing a program of study to meet their needs. In the senior year, an additional advisor is assigned from MBA program.

BS in Engineering/MBA Guidelines

Formal acceptance is granted after they meet all the standard MBA admissions requirements, which are:

  1. A minimum undergraduate GPA of 2.5
  2. A minimum Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) score of 450.
  3. A total of at least 1050 points based on the following formula: (GPA * 200) + GMAT score > 1050. An additional 100 points can be awarded for approved man-agerial work experience.
  4. Completion of required foundation courses before starting the MBA Program.

Interested students should contact the Associate Dean of Engineering at 856-256-5300

Concentration in Systems Engineering

The ECE department offers a concentration in Systems Engineering. Students can typically complete a concentration by taking three additional classes.

This concentration is designed in collaboration with industry experts, and its flag-ship course, Introduction to Systems Engineering is regularly taught by experi-enced high-level systems engineers and executives in major area engineering companies to provide the unique industry perspective.

For additional details and complete information, please see Systems Engineering Concentration Guidelines.

Minor in Electrical & Computer Engineering

An ECE minor represents an excellent opportunity for students in other technical and scientific majors to expand their knowledge and employment opportunities. The ECE minor provides undergraduate students from mathematics, the physical and biological sciences, and the other engineering disciplines the required background to broaden their scientific and engineering knowledge in ECE, as well as for pursuing graduate work in ECE at Rowan or elsewhere.

See Requirements for the Minor for additional details.
