Engineering/EECS Affiliates Program

This collaborative program between Career Resources & Employer Relations and the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) is intended to help maximize connections between students in EECS majors and employers seeking to hire them.

The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) was created in the spring of 2015 to allow students greater access to courses offered by both departments. The School offers B.S. degrees in computer science, computer engineering, and electrical engineering, and graduate degrees (M.S., M.Eng., Ph.D.) in computer science and engineering and electrical engineering, respectively.
