The extensive developments in microelectronics over recent decades have triggered a digital revolution where computers take center stage. While we still think of a computer as a desktop or a laptop, digital computing and digital signal processing have become vital for many of the products in our everyday life such as cars, mobile phones, tablets, cameras, household appliances, and more. The Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) program focuses on the areas of communications and digital signal processing, including the enabling digital processing elements and their programming. Those enabling technologies are mostly subsumed under the headline of embedded systems.
Career paths after graduation are very diverse. Jacobs ECE alumni work in the aerospace industry, telecommunications, the automotive and energy sector, and in the field of information technology, in academia, at research centers, in management and in consultancy, even in finance.
