Welcome from the Chair

John LaCourse

Welcome to the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of New Hampshire.   

We are proud of our long tradition of excellence in teaching and research that has made us one of the leading programs in electrical and computer engineering.  Our students acquire a solid foundation in engineering theory, gain experience in problem solving, and learn design through a curriculum heavily loaded with hands-on activities for a laboratory-based education. 

The ECE Department offers the following degree programs: BSEE, BSCE, with options in BSEE: Option in Biomedical Engineering, BSCE: Option in Biomedical Engineering.  The Option in Biomedical Engineering provide an avenue for students in either the BSEE or BSCE programs via technical electives to gain knowledge and practical experience in biomedical instrumentation for the detection and analysis of human bio-signals used in diagnosis and therapeutics.

The ECE Department also offers a Minor in Electrical and Computer Engineering. 

On behalf of the faculty of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, I welcome you to browse our website, social media pages, and learn more about us. You will find a host of information about our degree programs, academic requirements, and areas of research, faculty, staff, and students.
