Electrical & Computer Engineering

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering provides a modern, high quality educational experience for students while teaching the principles on which electrical engineering and computer engineering were founded. We prepare graduates for successful careers and enlightening graduate programs to meet the needs of employers and embark on compelling research endeavors in graduate school. Electrical and computer engineers are responsible for improving the day-to-day operations of citizens around the world who depend on electricity and electrical devices. These specialists help accelerate the development of the world by making current technology such as computers and communications infrastructure more widely available.

Advancing future of space-based communication networks

Helping to design and build the necessary technology is The University of Tulsa’s Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering Peter LoPresti, an expert in fiber-optic communication systems. Supported by a grant from NASA and in collaboration with John O’Hara and his research group at Oklahoma State University, LoPresti is working toward the launch of Oklahoma’s first CubeSat. This satellite will comprise three cubes, with each cube measuring 10 cm x 10 cm x 11 cm. Its chief purpose is to study the transmission of data by laser beam between the earth and a satellite.
