The Electrical and Computer Engineering Department Heads Association ( ECEDHA ) is the premier academic association of its kind encompassing all major electrical engineering , computer engineering , and related programs at universities across North America .
ECEDHA is the leading association for electrical and computer engineering educators , composed of nearly 250 ABET accredited ECE university department heads or chairs from across the United States and Canada .
ECEDHA ’ s mission is to catalyze the fields of electrical and computer engineering through member interaction and exchange . ECEDHA actively promotes industry relations and linkages through its Annual Conference and ECExpo , virtual programming , member meetings and forums , industry spotlights , and government sponsored grants and workshops .
Throughout the pandemic , ECEDHA remains a critical resource for its members . In recent months , ECEDHA has pivoted toward a yearround online membership organization with vital programs that keep academia informed and moving during these difficult times .
ECEDHA membership is open to official leaders ( whether called head , chair , or some other title ) of university departments offering ABET-accredited electrical and / or computer engineering ( or similarly named ) programs . Associate membership in ECEDHA is open to the leaders of similar departments whose programs are not currently accredited .
Affiliate membership in ECEDHA is granted by the ECEDHA Board of Directors to industrial and governmental organizations with a strong interest in electrical and computer engineering education .
