Pitt | Swanson Engineering

Our mission at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is to:

  • Produce graduates with a strong foundation in the basic sciences and mathematics that will enable them to identify and solve electrical engineering problems.
  • Provide students with a solid foundation in electrical engineering that prepares them for lifelong careers and professional growth in fields of their choice.
  • Provide our students with the basic skills to communicate effectively and to develop the ability to function as members of multidisciplinary teams.
  • Provide our students with a broad-based education so that they can appreciate diversity of opinion, better understand ethical issues, and develop a more global perspective.
  • Provide our students with a relevant engineering design experience that is integrated across the four-year curriculum. Through those experiences, we will develop in our students an understanding of the relationships between theory and practice.
