Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

Join Us in Empowering the Future.

Electrical and Computer Engineering traditionally includes circuits and electronics, telecommunications, power, and controls. Today, ECE graduates also lead projects in audio, optics, machine learning, biomedical imaging, and nanotechnology; they explore new frontiers in robotics, self-driving cars, Internet of Things, nanotechnology, cybersecurity, wearable electronics, wireless, computer chips, and renewable energy technologies.

What is Electrical and Computer Engineering?

Electrical and Computer Engineers are essential to countless industries: no car can be driven today without the sophisticated sensing, embedded computing and smart electronics developed by us. Medicine today would be unthinkable without the biomedical imaging and health informatics technologies we create within the electrical and computer engineering field. No home today could provide the comfort of modern living without the electrical power systems we design. We are the ones who work hard to keep our cyberspace secure and all of us reliably connected. At Drexel University, our computer and electrical engineering college offers real-world exposure to enable students to excel in future careers offering a plethora of opportunities for growth and professional development.

The College of Engineering invites applicants for tenure-track assistant professor faculty positions across multiple departments in the cluster themes of energy and sustainability; smart, integrated cities; and health, wellness, and medicine.
