Walter Scott, Jr. College of Engineering


We exist to educate and prepare undergraduate and graduate students to pursue exemplary careers in electrical and computer engineering industries and academia to generate new knowledge by the pursuit of research in selected areas of ECE.

Recognized for innovation in undergraduate education

At Colorado State University’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, innovation extends beyond the labs. Our out-of-the-box approach to learning is the reason we are one of only three ECE departments across the country selected by the National Science Foundation to lead the nation in revolutionizing engineering education.

Internationally-Recognized Faculty

Known around the world for achievements in research, scholarship, and teaching, many of our faculty are fellows of multiple professional societies and hold the highest honors in their fields. In addition to a large fraction of IEEE Fellows amongst our full professors, we boast one Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors. We are home to three University Distinguished Professors and one University Distinguished Teaching Scholar – the highest distinctions on campus for professors.  

Engineer in Residence Program brings real world of engineering to campus

ECE is home to the Engineer in Residence program, an innovative program that gives students a window into the real world of engineering by bringing experienced professionals into our labs to work alongside students. Designed to help students develop professional skills and learn firsthand how that knowledge relates to the workplace, the program is attracting seasoned engineers from a range of companies and areas of technical expertise.
