Welcome to the CEECS Department!
The Department of Computer and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at CSUB offers three Bachelor of Science degree programs directly applicable to the expanding computer and electrical engineering industries in the United States. Our laboratory facilities are new and up to date and our program offers a high degree of student-faculty interaction. Our faculty are research and grant active and there is a good opportunity for undergraduate students to assist in faculty research.
The Computer Science degree program at CSUB started in Fall 1985. Computer science is a field which encompasses the full range of hardware and software applications dealing with operations on information: access, storage, presentation, security, communication, manipulation, and computation. Information is fundamental to computer science in the same way that energy is fundamental to physics. The field covers applications areas such as hardware drivers and system software, networking, computer security, computer graphics, artificial intelligence, expert systems, database systems, application software, software engineering, bioinformatics, web design and online commerce. Besides the main Computer Science track, which follows the standards set by the professional organizations ACM, IEEE, and ABET, the department offers two other concentrations:
1. a Computer Information Systems Track (CIS) for those who wish to study primarily the software applications portion of computer science, and
2. an Information Security Track (IS) for those who wish to specialize in global intelligence and national security with a strong computer science background.
The Electrical Engineering degree program at CSUB started in Fall 2012. We currently offer the electrical engineering core along with advanced electives such as data communications, signal processing, power systems, electrical machinery, and mechatronics. The Computer Engineering degree program at CSUB started in Fall 2011. Computer engineering, in some sense, resides between the well-established fields of computer science and electrical engineering. It is concerned with topics such as analog and digital circuit design, embedded controllers, computer hardware, system software, computer system design, computer networks, robotics and control system design, image processing, computer vision, and graphics. Both programs follow the standards set by the professional organizations IEEE and ABET.
The goal of our program is to produce graduates who are scholastically competitive and who will engage in the productive practice of engineering and computer science to identify and solve significant problems across a broad range of application areas.
