Electrical and Computer Engineering
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering unites a tech-minded perspective with a big-picture philosophy, building engineers who can both dissect the details of miniature sensor and actuator systems and see the long-term consequences of their actions. Beyond your specialization, you’ll work on interdisciplinary research projects in cutting-edge areas like biomedicine and energy, brain-machine interaction, the internet of things, wirelessly powered implants, artificial intelligence and the associated novel computing hardware, and building tomorrow’s smart grid. From basic fundamentals to breakthrough technologies, you’ll develop the expertise, innovation and leadership your future career will call for.
