DEPARTMENT OF COMPUTER SCIENCE ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING

Students work with Dr. Lee in the computer lab

Few industries have changed faster than computer science and electrical engineering. Cloud technology, Internet security and mobile applications are a few of the advances that have revolutionized the workforce and global economy. The industry has expanded so rapidly that’s it’s impossible to predict how technology careers will change in four years, but one thing is certain: A degree from UMKC’s Computer Science Electrical Engineering Department will prepare you to adjust to your new role and help move society forward.
