Northeastern's Electrical & Computer Engineering Department produces world-recognized research across the broad spectrum of ECE while being dedicated to the education and mentoring of undergraduate and graduate students.
Over 70 ECE and affiliated faculty are engaged in cutting-edge research funded by a wide variety of US government agencies and over 20 industrial partners with 4 NSF- and DHS-funded research centers. Our research strengths include sensing and imaging, communications and digital signal processing, power and control systems, power electronics, RF/microwave magnetic materials, device technologies, and computer engineering. Research is not limited to our graduate students; undergraduates are welcomed and integrated into research labs and are regular co-authors on scholarly publications.
Currently the department is home to 646 undergraduates, 360 masters' students, and 260 PhD students.
