About the department

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) is the largest department in the College of Engineering. We currently have 21 full-time faculty members, an average undergraduate enrollment of approximately 300 students, and a graduate enrollment of roughly 200 master's and 60 Ph.D. students. ECE faculty members conduct cutting-edge research in diverse areas, including computer engineering, communications, control and energy systems, nanotechnology, smart sensors, biomedical electronics, photonics, robotics, vehicle electronics, embedded systems, infrared imaging and non-destructive evaluations. Our students are heavily involved in research as well as internship and co-op programs. Our average class size is approximately 25 students for undergraduate courses and 20 students for graduate courses. Full-time faculty members teach introductory and advanced courses.


Provide students with outstanding academic and research experiences and prepare them to meet the needs and challenges in electrical and computer engineering.


Our primary goal is to be one of the premier programs in providing education and cutting-edge research experiences to prepare our students for careers in industry, academia and the public sector.
