Opportunities for Giving
Just as the success of our ECEN graduates enhances the reputation of the department - the reputation of the department enhances the degrees of our graduates.
The Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering’s graduate and undergraduate programs at Texas A&M University were among the top schools ranked nationally according to The U.S. News & World Report’s release of America’s best graduate and undergraduate schools for 2010.
For undergraduate schools, electrical engineering is ranked 15th overall and 9th among public schools. For graduate schools, electrical engineering is ranked 20th among 185 Ph.D.-granting engineering schools and 12th among public schools. Computer engineering is ranked 20th overall and 13th among public schools.
As part of a state-assisted university, we are very appreciative of the funding provided by the State of Texas. However, as time goes by, that funding becomes a smaller and smaller percentage of the overall budget required to maintain the university (currently about 32%). The university and its departments rely heavily on gifts and endowments to sustain and enhance their programs.
For the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering to sustain and enhance its programs and its ranking, and your degree, we must compete with other universities for the best faculty and the best students. That takes resources.
