Why electrical and computer engineering?
Because that’s where the power is.
Why Electrical and Computer Engineering at UK?
One great reason is UK’s reputation for strong academics combined with a great success rate for job placement and alumni success.
Academic Culture — You’re not lost in the crowd.
Students who enroll in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Kentucky study at Kentucky’s flagship research institution. “Research institution” means you’re learning from topflight people looking to make the next big breakthroughs in their field. At UK those fields include video surveillance, nanoelectronic devices, “smart” houses and other cutting edge areas. That’s the good news.
But there’s no bad news. At some top research universities, faculty may seem buried in their own research and students can feel like second-class citizens…..at UK, not so. ECE faculty are readily accessible both inside and outside the classroom and students have the chance to grow personally and professionally.
An undergraduate certificate is a way to show that in addition to the BS you have a special interest in and knowledge of a particular topic. For example, EE offers undergraduate certificates in the traditional and well-established – a Physics emphasis — [engineering/physics link here] to the most radical, like Nano-Scale Engineering where you work with objects one billionth of a meter in size. The newest EE certificate emphasis covers cutting edge issues in power and energy, including “smart grid” and renewable energy areas.
