Welcome to Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University at Albany!

Founded just over 2 years ago, ECE is rapidly growing in both faculty and students.  Our outstanding faculty are conducting research in a wide range of topics spanning computer engineering, communications and networks, signal and information processing, and electronic circuits and systems.  The department currently offers the Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering (B.S. CE) degree, and the proposal for the Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering (B.S. ECE) is pending approval from the New York State Education Department. Also subject to approval from NYSED are proposals for the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering (M.S. ECE and Ph.D. ECE).  Our vision is that ECE will be a fully-featured department, offering degrees from the B.S. through the Ph.D. in an environment that fosters both learning and research.   It’s an exciting time to be part of ECE at UAlbany and, as always, a great day to be a Great Dane!
