Academics

Texas ECB students receive a top-ranked education provided through two highly regarded programs, Texas McCombs Canfield Business Honors and Cockrell’s Texas Electrical and Computer Engineering, respectively. The curriculum comprises both Electrical and Computer Engineering and Business Honors classes, taken with 30-40 students.

Students will begin honors-level courses in their first semester with a strong foundation in business, electrical, and computer engineering. Special programming on entrepreneurship and experiential learning will give students the chance to turn concepts into action. Students will complete a program-specific capstone project during their last year based in ECE and Business, in conjunction with industry leaders, as their launchpad for the next step in their careers. Texas ECB is a phenomenal opportunity for students looking toward careers in electrical and computer engineering, and business.

Note: This sample schedule represents ONE possible arrangement. Common incoming, but not required for admission, credits: Microeconomics (ECO 304K), Macroeconomics (ECO 304L), Physics: Mechanics (PHY 303K/103M), Physics: Electricity and Magnetism (PHY 303L/103N), English Literature (E 316P), and U.S. Government (GOV 310L). If students do not have credits for these courses, summer coursework may be required to graduate in 4 years. Schedules will need to be adjusted based on catalog, course availability, as well as academic interests and incoming credits.
