The Minor in Electronic Intelligent Systems (EIS)

The Electronic Intelligent Systems (EIS) minor offers the opportunity to gain breadth as well as depth in the area of electronic intelligent systems that connect to the physical and social world.

The minor includes sub-areas such as robotics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence as well as electronic/electrical engineering. Students learn computer programming as well as computer engineering. EIS minors achieve an understanding of conceptual foundations and emerging applications over a broad range of electrical engineering, computer engineering, and computer science subjects.
