The Electrical and Computer Engineering Department offers programs leading to the degrees of Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering, Master of Science in Cybersecurity, and Doctor of Philosophy in Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Active areas of research in electrical and computer engineering include cybersecurity, computer systems, network science, big data, machine learning, bioengineering, clean energy, communications, signal processing and controls, computer and sensor networks, electromagnetics and photonics, and nanoelectronics materials and devices.

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is housed in Evans Hall and DuPont Hall. The Department maintains excellent facilities for teaching and research, including supercomputing and distributed computing systems, and class 10 and class 1000 clean rooms equipped for epitaxial crystal growth, semiconductor device fabrication, and nanofabrication. Additional laboratories are well-equipped for electronic, microwave, and optical measurements, signal and image capture and processing, computational imaging, millimeter and terahertz imaging, antenna, electromagnetics, high performance computing, communications studies, and biomedical signal capture and investigations. Complementing these facilities are Government funded major Research Centers supporting the focus areas, including the Institute for Energy Conversion, Center for Composite Materials, Nanotechnology Center, and the Delaware Biotechnology Institute.

General computing facilities include state-of-the-art servers with a variety of workstations from Sun, SGI, HP, IBM and others. The Department maintains a state-of-the-art Intranet connecting all rooms, labs, and offices, as well as connecting the Department with the rest of campus and the Internet. Several computing laboratories are available with workstations, PCs, and a variety of software to support teaching and research with 24x7 access. Many labs contain specialized computing and networking equipment to aid research in specific areas.

Graduate students are expected to actively participate in research, including the development of presentations and publications detailing their research contributions.

Current UD undergraduate students can be considered for admission to the 4+1 BEE/MS in Electrical Engineering or the 4+1 BCpE/MS in Electrical Engineering. A dual degree in the MBA & MS in Electrical Engineering programs is available to graduate students.
