Small class sizes
Our average class size range from 18-24 students and will not exceed 24 students--even in introductory classes. This provides one-on-one instruction and interaction with our world-class faculty.
At Weber State ECE, our emphasis is applied engineering and not strictly theory. Our goal is for every student to be prepared for the workforce in cutting edge electrical and computer engineering careers. Our method is teaching through hands-on experiences: rigorous laboratory classes, internships, and a senior capstone design project.
Our program accommodates students in any phase of life. Many of our courses are taught during both semesters as well as during the evenings in order to better fit the needs of non-traditional students.
In December 2021, we expect to move to our new state-of-the-art building on the Ogden campus. More details can be found here.
Electrical and computer engineering consistently rank near the top of the list of bachelor's degrees with the highest salary potential. The tech and defense industries along the Wasatch Front are rapidly expanding. Close to Weber State, there is significant growth in the field due to programs such as the Sustainment and Upgrades of the Joint Striker Fighter F-35 at Hill Air Force Base and Lockheed Martin as well as the Design and Development of Ground Based Strategic Deterrent (GBSD) at Northrop Grumman. Given the exciting employment landscape along the Wasatch Front, our graduates are in high demand.
Weber State ECE graduates have historically enjoyed nearly 100% job placement upon graduation.
