Why ECE?

Electrical engineering lies at the core of many technologies that we take for granted including: electrical power, wireless communication, consumer electronics, digital computing, computer software, computer networks, automatic controls, medical imaging, remote sensing, and the miniature devices that make all of these technologies possible.

Electrical Engineers find employment in all of these areas and, more generally, everywhere smart technology is employed. They consistently rank among the most sought after, and highest paid, technology professionals. Electrical engineering is also an excellent starting point for further study in medicine, law and business.

Electrical and Computer Engineering is a highly interdisciplinary department,  with strong ties to many other fields, including medicine, physics, and computer science.
