Electronics and computer engineering labs for next-level learning
Technology is a tactile field. The best way to learn is with hands-on training. BGSU has 13 state-of-the-art laboratories dedicated to engineering studies. Roughly 80% of core engineering courses include lab learning and projects.
BGSU continuously invests in the latest technological tools and resources to ensure you are set up for success as soon as you graduate.
Labs and spaces specifically for use by electronics and computer engineering majors include:
- Electronics and Computer Lab – 6,400 square feet of space equipped with DC power supplies, function generators, oscilloscopes, multimeters, PLC stations and more.
- Networking and Communications Lab – 1,500 square feet of space with CISCO networking equipment, server rack cabinets for CISCO, wireless equipment, a communications board and more.
- Controls and Instrumentation Lab – 3,000 square feet of space set up with 15 work stations, Q-robot arms, active suspension, Quasar Linear Servo Base and more.
- Support spaces – 22,000+ square feet of additional space, including project rooms, maker space, conference rooms, an innovation center, tech store and more.
Career - what can you do with a electronics and computer engineering degree?
Many BGSU students land their first job offers through co-op connections. Our roster of 3,000+ co-op partners includes big names like Marathon Petroleum, Owens Corning, NASA, Matrix Technologies, First Solar and more.
Career paths include computer engineering, process control systems, network administration, product development, sales and service.
The ECE curriculum at BGSU is uniquely crafted to include a combination of theory and practice. We prioritize critical thinking, teamwork and big-picture perspectives to ensure engineering graduates are “real world ready.”
Become an expert in designing and developing electronic and computer systems:
- Computer hardware
- Semiconductor electronics
- Microcontrollers and embedded systems
- Communication systems
- Control and automation systems
- Energy systems
- And more
A total of 122 program hours is required to graduate. Coursework leans heavily on hands-on experience with lab learning, research projects and two semester-long co-ops. A bonus: the senior design project is industry-sponsored. Engineering students actively tackle real challenges in a collaborative, academic setting.
- Electric Machines and Drives

The electronics and computer engineering program is part of the School of Engineering in the BGSU College of Technology, Architecture and Applied Engineering.
The Electronics and Computer Engineering bachelor’s degree program at Bowling Green State University is ABET-compliant. Accreditation is officially granted once the first group of ECE majors graduate. Accreditation is retroactive, so all BGSU ECE graduates can claim completion of an ABET-accredited program.
