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.

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. 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.

Prospective Students

Become an engineer of the future. Prospective undergraduates can see all Drexel has to offer during a campus visit, offered Monday to Friday and most Saturdays, or a college-wide Open House event. If you're interested in our Master's or PhD programs, please visit our prospective graduate students page for more information on our programs.
