Our Mission Statement

The mission of the Department of Electrical Engineering is to provide high quality education for students through a program that offers challenging hands-on laboratory and design components in conjunction with a thorough foundation in theory, and to equip students with the skills to be life-long contributors to their profession and society.

A Welcome Note From Our Department Head

The Department of Computer Engineering was established by the University of Minnesota Board of Regents in 1983, and accepted its first students in September of that year. The Department changed its name to Electrical and Computer Engineering on December 15, 1994. (Read More...)

Society of Women Engineers

The Society of Women Engineer's mission is to stimulate women to achieve full potential in careers as engineers and leaders, expand the image of the engineering profession as a positive force in improving the quality of life, and demonstrate the value of diversity. Open to both men and women in engineering, the UMD SWE chapter attends regional and national conferences, hosts speakers from engineering companies, organizes outreach events with the Duluth community, and has several social gatherings throughout the year. Members participate in volunteer opportunities, are eligible for scholarships and awards, and have the chance to network with other students and professionals in engineering. Com visit us at
