The Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) department traces its roots back to the establishment of the Applied Electrophysics department in 1965, under its founding chair Henry Booker. Through a succession of department realignments emerged today’s ECE in 1987, when the then-combined Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department was split into two departments. Since then, ECE has earned a world-class reputation for producing top-notch engineers for industry and academia.

The Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department at the Jacobs School of Engineering traces its history back to 1965, with the creation of the department of Applied Electrophysics, which became Applied Physics & Information Science, then Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, and finally ECE as we know it today. Throughout those formative years, our vision focused on information and communication theory and systems, radio physics, and quantum electronics. ECE is among the leading departments of its kind in the nation, built on fundamentals of applied mathematics and engineering physics, providing multidisciplinary, systems-oriented education and research in seven core areas: Communication Theory and Systems, Computer Engineering, Electronic Devices and Materials, Electronic Circuits and Systems, Photonics and Optoelectronics, Intelligent Systems/Control/Robotics as well as Signal and Image Processing.
