In the field of electrical and computer engineering, basic physical and mathematical principles are utilized to develop new devices, technologies, and techniques of constantly broadening application. Examples are the development of smaller, cheaper, and more powerful computers, microprocessors, and other data processors, stemming from advances in solid-state and integrated circuit technology, and their utilization in a growing range of system applications; the growing use of data communications and sophisticated communication networks; the use of lasers, and the development of fiber optic and integrated optical devices for various applications ranging from optical data processing to communication; development of sophisticated control techniques, smart sensors, and transducers for advanced automation and electric power systems; the application of electronics to health care and diagnostics (such as noninvasive measurements and ultrasound imaging); and energy conversion devices.

The areas of study available in the Department include: solid-state devices, lasers, smart sensors, information sciences, digital circuits, computer engineering, integrated and active circuits, nanotechnology, biomedical electronics and systems, image processing, neural networks, and modern control theory.

Programs of both experimental and theoretical study are available in all these areas, as well as other interdisciplinary programs through the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department.

A more detailed exposition of the Department's research activities is available on our website. Senior students are encouraged to participate in research activities by means of independent study projects and student assistantships. Graduate students normally participate in the research program as graduate teaching assistants and research assistants.

The College of Engineering laboratory building contains seven instructional laboratories for experimental work in control systems, analog circuits, digital systems, microcomputers, instrumentation, optics, and communication systems; these laboratories are an integral part of the instructional program. In addition, the Departmental faculty have eight research laboratories dealing with computer systems, multi-media systems, semiconductor device materials including a clean-room facility, opto-electronics, computation and neural networks, image processing, nanotechnology, telematics, and embedded systems. Computer facilities are available for student use; the College Computer Center as well as the University Computing Services Center are available to all students through individual student accounts.
