Welcome Message From The Chair

Dr. Zaruba's Picture

Dr. Gergely Záruba


I would like to welcome all prospective students, current students, alumni, and friends to the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS). We offer three Bachelor of Science degrees: Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, and Computer Science. We offer three Master of Science degrees: Electrical and Computer Engineering, Computer Networking, and Computer Science, as well as a graduate certificate in Information Assurance and Security. We also offer a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.

As Wichita State University is located in the largest city in Kansas, our students have numerous opportunities to engage in cooperative education or an internship while they are going to school. Students study and conduct state of the art research in many areas including: computer networking, software engineering, big data, information security and privacy, control systems, power systems, energy systems, communications and signal processing, databases, quantum computing, data science, robotics, and algorithms.

We are the largest department in the College of Engineering. We're proud of our size and our continued growth, which coincides with the College of Engineering's prominence in WSU becoming the Innovation University. Our main offices are in the center of the campus, on the second floor of Jabara Hall, while research and teaching labs can be found in Jabara Hall, Wallace Hall, Beggs Hall, and our new and exciting John Bardo Center (experiential engineering building).

While we are energized by the growth and change, we do not want to let our size inhibit our ability to develop a sense of community within the department. For this reason, we are undertaking a number of steps to increase internal and external communication with our students, staff, faculty, alumni and friends. Please "like" us on Facebook, where we regularly post updates on student, faculty and alumni activities and achievements or join our group on LinkedIn.

Best wishes,
Dr. Gergely Záruba
Professor and Chair, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
