Programs

The principal goal of the baccalaureate programs in the ECE Department is to provide students with the fundamentals of electrical or computer engineering so that they have an excellent base for a successful engineering career. The ECE Department offers several different undergraduate programs.

Electrical Engineering

The EE program is divided into several areas of concentration, or tracks: Digital Systems, Electromagnetics, Microelectronics, Optics, Power/Energy Systems, Signals and Systems, and Systems and Controls. A Power and Energy track is the most recent addition, reflecting the sustainability and "green" objectives of today's engineering disciplines. See the EE Curriculum Sheet for more details.

Computer Engineering

The CompE program offers two tracks: software and hardware. Students must take two classes from the track of their choice. The tracks and appropriate technical electives give the student a broad education in the track of their choice. See the CompE Curriculum Sheet for more details.

3+2 B.S./M.B.A

The School of Engineering recognizes that many engineers become managers of engineering programs and projects and thus require training in business methods beyond their engineering training. In cooperation with the Anderson School of Management (ASM) at the University of New Mexico, the School of Engineering offers a “3 + 2” program of studies leading to the B.S. and M.B.A. degrees in five years. This program involves selecting core and technical electives that are compatible with both degree programs and applying to the M.B.A. program at the end of the junior year of engineering studies. For more information on the 3+2 program contact Valarie Maestas.

Shared Credit Program

The School of Engineering offers a Shared Credit Degrees Program designed to allow students to complete a B.S. and M.S., or a B.S. and M.Eng. degree in five years (depending upon the student’s mathematics preparation upon entering UNM as a first-year student). To accomplish this, some courses are counted towards both the Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees. For more information on the shared credit program contact Valarie Maestas.
