Welcome to ECE - Electrical and Computer Engineering

The mission of the Electrical and Computer Engineering department is to provide relevant and unique advanced education and research programs to meet Naval unique needs, and increase the warfighting effectiveness of the U.S. Naval Forces, DoD and allied armed forces.

Our students include commissioned officers of the Naval Service, other U.S. and allied armed forces, civilian employees of the Defense Department and international defense establishments. Civilian employees of DoD contractors are also eligible to attend NPS in limited numbers.

Programs provide students with the technical foundation necessary for the research, design, development, procurement, maintenance, and management of electronic systems. Students will gain hands-on experience on cutting-edge war fighting technologies that impact all facets of defense and will be prepared to face challenges in a rapidly changing technical world. Our MSEE Degree Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

“The demand signal from the leadership across the Navy has never been as strong as the demand we’re getting for the skills that you are developing here.” “...It is an academic experience, but it is also an experience with your fellow officers, international officers and with the faculty, who you may reach out to once you get out there and ask for advice, and I think that’s a great thing.”
