Electrical & Computer Engineering and Computer Science Department


 

Each program in the department, Computer Engineering, Computer Science and Electrical Engineering, shares the same goals of producing high quality graduates through a broad-based curriculum that stresses fundamentals and the development of a professional work ethic. Many of our courses offer accessible, hands-on, practical laboratory experiences using relevant equipment and disciplined practices. Small class sizes allow for a positive teaching environment where students can easily interact one-on-one with their professors, both inside and outside the classroom. All programs share a year-long senior design sequence that allows students to work on interdisciplinary comprehensive projects, learn about team management issues and deal with the technical aspects of design while being prepared for the workplace.

Our professional organizations allow both students and faculty to engage in career-long learning while also having fun. It is this small, closely knit atmosphere combined with a big, quality education that brings our students to Ohio Northern and is also what gives them both the drive and the tools they need to succeed for the rest of their lives.
