Welcome to the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Lawrence Technological University (LTU).
We are engaged in a wide range of sub-disciplines in ECE, offering undergraduate and graduate programs in electrical, computer, and embedded software engineering; and certificates in electrical power systems, embedded systems, and telecommunication systems. We contribute to other programs that address ECE related areas; such as robotics, mechatronics, and biomedical engineering.
We are dedicated to excellence in teaching, and research. LTU’s original motto is that of “theory and practice,” and our department strives to adhere to that motto. Our sub-disciplines are designed to keep up with the ever changing market and technology. This prepares our graduates to grow and mature over time as their careers demand. For example, LTU is the first university in the nation to offer a degree in embedded software engineering (ESE). Furthermore, we are partner institution of the Kern Entrepreneurial Engineering Network (KEEN), KEEN at LTU.
Our ECE graduates enjoy a wide range of career options to choose from. They work in fields related to automotive, aviation/aerospace, bioelectrical devices, communications systems, computer electronics, consumer products, electrical equipment, entertainment industry, robotics, and power plants, just to name a few. A large number of our students also take advantage of our co-op and internship options to obtain pertinent work experience prior to graduation. LTU’s Office of Career Services offers a range of resources to help our students throughout their career journey.
Our undergraduate students and graduate research students make us very proud because they work tirelessly to reach their goals of becoming successful problem-solvers, critical-thinkers, and entrepreneurs to ensure improvement of our quality of life. Our research students have worked on real-world projects in collaboration with industry, such as Detroit Edison Energy (DTE), Ford Motor, and Hyundai America Technical Center, Inc. (HATCI).
Please feel welcome to explore our website and learn more about our programs. I look forward to welcoming you to our department as a student, as a colleague, or as a visitor.
