Create. Transform.

Electrical and computer engineers developed many of the innovations that have influenced modern life. Advanced technology solutions include a broad range of areas within communications, electronics, computer architecture, and intelligent systems. Our faculty and graduate students are involved in impressive projects, and the department has been the recipient of several grant awards from national research programs. Our research activities are conducted in fully equipped laboratories, many of which are housed in the state-of-the-art Fluor Daniel Engineering Innovation Building.
