Dr. Jiann-Shiou Yang, Professor and Head of the Department

On behalf of the faculty and staff, I would like to welcome you to the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Minnesota Duluth!

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 and effective Fall 2012, it becomes the Department of Electrical Engineering offering the B.S.E.E. degree and the Computer Engineering (CpE) minor. In addition, the Department administers a new interdisciplinary Energy Engineering minor designed for students with majors in engineering. Over the most recent years, the number of students in the program has been steady, and we currently enroll about 200 undergraduate students. We also started the M.S. program in Fall 2003, and now we have about 20 graduate students. The Department has twelve faculty members (nine tenured faculty, one adjunct Assistant Professor, and two adjunct instructors). Our faculty have been active in research, teaching, and service for the University and the Community. Our students are tops in their academic accomplishments as well as being active in extra-curricular professional activities including the student branch of the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). Student involvement in working with faculty on their research projects has also grown dramatically. We pride ourselves on our strong teaching, research, and learning culture in the Department. Our graduates have been successful in finding excellent jobs in the fields of electrical and computer engineering, working for large as well as small companies. We are very pleased with our accomplishments, with our students, and with our graduates. We hope to pursue our activities vigorously, and to continue to attract excellent students to our program. Please explore these web pages to get a glimpse of the EE program at UMD.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Department at 218-726-6147 or ee@d.umn.edu or myself at 218-726-6290, e-mail jyang@d.umn.edu.

Sincerely,


Jiann-Shiou Yang, Ph.D.
Professor and Department Head
