​Electrical & Systems Engineering

Electrical and systems engineers make remarkable contributions to our society. Examples include computers, microchips, modems, cellular phones, DVD players, video game consoles, iPods, robots, MRI and optical fiber communications.
​These instruments have helped to create the information age. We provide an interdisciplinary curriculum with a unique combination of analytical, computational and experimental activities. Our broad education is the key to the success of our graduates who choose positions in academia, high-tech companies, biotechnology, investment banking and government research laboratories.

Projects current undergraduates are working on with our faculty include:
  • antitheft measures for credit card systems
  • micro/nano-photonic devices for computers, communications and medical instruments
  • novel statistical data processing methods that localize electrical activities in the central nervous system for treating epilepsy patients
Our students participate in laboratories developing state-of-the-art technologies with multidisciplinary applications.
