We offer students real-world experience and industry connections to engineer for the cyber future and create more durable, sustainable technologies for human creativity and communication. We believe that good design is inspired by how humans think about and interact with technology. We present electrical and computer engineering as an integrated tool-kit that students can use to design hardware for AI and chips for edge computing, develop next-generation photovoltaic cells, improve medical imaging, and increase the security and performance of wireless communications.
Our graduates have joined leading high-tech and semiconductor firms including Amazon, Apple, IBM and Intel Corporation; advanced manufacturers such as Ford, Boeing and SpaceX; and gold-standard consulting firms such as Booz Allen, earning a median entry-level annual salary of $78,000. Others have earned admission to prestigious graduate schools, including the California Institute of Technology, Stanford, Princeton and MIT, in addition to our own graduate programs here at UVA.
Graduates of the Bachelors of Science in electrical engineering program are successful practitioners and innovators in electrical engineering and other fields. They analyze, design and implement creative solutions to problems with electrical and electronic devices and systems.
Graduates of the Bachelors of Science in Computer Engineering Program are successful practitioners and innovators in computer engineering and other fields. They analyze, design and implement creative solutions to problems with computer hardware, software, systems and applications.
ECE undergraduates learn fundamentals and soft skills through studio teaching. As fourth-years, they form teams to apply and demonstrate what they have learned in a capstone course, which includes an annual open-public poster session and research fair in the National Instruments Engineering Discovery Lab.
UVA's Office of Undergraduate Admission provides a one-stop shop and information portal to answer your questions about the School of Engineering and Applied Science and the online application process. We welcome a diverse, talented, ambitious and well-rounded pool of engineering students.
