Who We Are
The EECS Department is organized into two divisions: Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) and Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), which administer top-ranking undergraduate programs in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, and Computer Science (students can enter CS through the College of Engineering or the College of LSA). Graduate programs are offered in Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Electrical Engineering Systems.
The University of Michigan is one of the nation's leading research universities, with EECS research expenditures over $50M in 2011. EECS is a leader in technology transfer at U-M, with our faculty and students generating 50% more inventions, agreements, new business start-ups and revenues than any other department at the University (U-M Annual Report 2010).
