Who We Are

The ECE Department is a strong community of faculty and students who work together to generate advances in computer and electrical engineering to address a range of challenges in our world. The links below give an introduction to who we are.

What We Do

ECE faculty and students conduct research programs across a wide array of topics in: communications and networks; computer architecture and high-performance computing; electric power and energy; electromagnetics, radiation systems, and microwave engineering; MEMS/NEMS, electronics, and photonics; and signal and image processing, systems, and controls. In conducting our research, we also take advantage of the access that our Washington, DC location provides to federal laboratories and agencies. Visit our research pages to learn more about our research programs and current projects.
