What is Texas ECB?
The Texas Honors Electrical and Computer Engineering and Business program offers a dual degree that provides hands-on, project-based learning within two of the most in-demand fields in today’s marketplace. Challenging coursework will provide a solid understanding of both business and electrical and computer engineering (ECE), while simultaneously enabling students to earn bachelor's degrees in ECE honors and business honors more quickly than studying each discipline independently. Texas ECB students will have the unique opportunity to establish world-class skills from the outset of their academic journey by learning strong foundations in business, electrical, and computer engineering in honors-level courses starting their first semester.
Texas ECB offers enrolled students a like-minded community, placing them in a small cohort of honors-level peers savvy in both business and engineering. Throughout their four years on the Forty Acres students will focus on team based projects, culminating in a year-long capstone design project.
