The Electrical and Computer Engineering Department Heads Association is composed of heads or chairs of departments offering accredited programs in electrical and/or computer engineering.

The purposes of ECEDHA, as expressed in the ECEDHA constitution, are threefold:

  • help advance the field;
  • facilitate member interaction and idea exchange;
  • improve communication with the profession, industry, government, and others.


ECEDHA membership is open to official leaders (whether called head, chair, or some other title) of U.S. university departments offering ABET-accredited electrical and/or computer engineering (or similarly named) programs. Of about 300 departments offering such programs, almost 90 percent are currently represented in ECEDHA.

Associate membership in ECEDHA is open to the leaders of similar departments that are either located outside the U.S., or 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.

Those who qualify for any grade of membership but who are not currently members are encouraged to apply for membership. Inquiries should be sent to information@ecedha.org.

A list of ECEDHA members is not available. However, the ECEDHA online Directory of Electrical and Computer Engineering Departments gives names and contact information of department heads, most of whom are ECEDHA members.
