About Us


The Mission of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is to educate our students, at the bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral levels, to prepare for careers in electrical and computer engineering, or in other professions, in which they will make a positive contribution to the growth of society and to the betterment of the human condition, in the Jesuit tradition. We do this by teaching the concepts and the tools necessary to understand the physical world, particularly with respect to the fundamental laws of electricity and magnetism. Our students apply this knowledge to engineering problems, and they seek to understand the effect that electrical engineering has on society, and the obligations that the electrical engineer has to society. The Department contributes to the vitality of Silicon Valley and beyond through its teaching, practice, and scholarship.
