Electrical & Computer Engineering

Electrical Engineers learn the inner workings of small, hand-held electronics to massive electrical grids. Computer Engineers focus on making computing systems safer, faster and more powerful. Add a Software Engineering emphasis to help meet Oklahoma’s job market demand.

engineering students
  • 100% of Electrical & Computer Engineering graduates are employed within six months of graduation
  • 1st to offer software engineering focused degrees in Oklahoma
  • 16 years of industry experience is average for OC faculty! We teach exactly what you need to know
  • 388 alumni to help you make industry connections and land internships

Add a soft­ware empha­sis to your degree to help meet the great mar­ket demand.

The OC Difference

We are engineers teaching the next generation of engineers. Small on class-size and big on labs, engineering faculty average 16 years of industry experience! We’ve developed a faith-filled curriculum to assure you graduate industry-ready in an environment built to strengthen faith and develop individual gifts.
