Welcome from the Chairman

Professor 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.  ECE offers accredited programs for a B.S. in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) and a B.S. Computer Engineering (BSCE), and an M.Eng, M.S., and Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering.  In addition to our Minor in Electrical Engineering, we have added an Option in Biomedical Engineering.  The primary objective of the Biomedical Engineering Option is to provide an avenue for students in either the BSEE or BSCE programs to gain knowledge and practical experience in biomedical instrumentation for the detection and analysis of human bio-signals used in diagnosis and therapeutics.

On behalf of the faculty of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, I welcome you to browse our website 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. If you are a prospective undergraduate or graduate student, please come visit us as we always have time to welcome new and talented students to our programs!
