The world needs engineers with more than just great technical skills — it needs ethical and visionary leaders. Bucknell's nationally ranked electrical engineering and computer engineering majors will help you develop personally as you prepare for a career with employers such as Amazon, Lockheed Martin or Accenture — or any job seeking the in-demand skills and experiences you’ll gain. You'll connect with professors at the top of fields from renewable energy to embedded systems to smart surgical technologies, and build a professional network to last a lifetime. You'll also find the flexibility to pursue an academic minor, study abroad or play an instrument — and still graduate in four years.

Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering? There’s Time to Decide

Bucknell offers distinct bachelor of science degree tracks in electrical engineering and computer engineering. The course requirements for the first two years of the two programs are identical, offering students time to decide which path to pursue, and allowing them to easily switch between programs.
