It’s an exciting time to be an electrical and computer engineer! ECE graduates are leading the development of world-changing technologies such as renewable energy systems, wireless networking, smart cities, embedded computing systems, medical devices, robotics, and so much more. Our programs combine analytical rigor with experiential exploration and our students develop an appetite for solving complex problems in service to society. They work shoulder to shoulder with world-class faculty, tackle local and global challenges and put ideas into action. Join us in building a better world!
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is located in the ETEC facility, a new academic and research building that brings academia and innovation together under one roof. Equipped with modern interactive classrooms and state-of-the-art teaching laboratories and equipment, ETEC is a shining example of how the University is incorporating innovative, sustainable technologies into its construction projects while strengthening its academic offerings for students.
UAlbany Electrical and Computer Engineering BS Program
CTG UAlbany’s new faculty fellows program is designed to serve as a platform of intellectual exchange and an appreciation for interdisciplinary scholarship. CTG UAlbany, which works with governments worldwide transforming public services through innovations in technology, policy and management, has maintained a roster of research fellows since its founding nearly 30 years ago.
After a more than yearlong review, the University at Albany’s College of Engineering and Applied Sciences (CEAS) has secured ABET accreditation for its bachelor of science degrees in computer science and electrical & computer engineering.
Mustafa Aksoy has been awarded $499,680 through the National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program for project, "CAREER: Enabling the Next Generation Wideband Microwave Radiometers for the Remote Sensing of the Cryosphere."
With the goal of becoming the first university-based computer to reach a quintillion computations per second, Albany AI will empower university and industry researchers to harness massive data sets to better understand how to automate complex operations, and create teaching and research collaborations with faculty in all disciplines.
The University at Albany today began a new era of teaching and research with the launch of Albany AI, a $200 million public-private supercomputing initiative based out of UAlbany’s soon-to-be-renovated College of Engineering and Applied Sciences building. Buoyed by $75 million in state funding to complete the transformation of the former Albany High School into a state-of-the-art engineering college and fund the construction of a supercomputer, the Albany Artificial Intelligence Supercomputing Initiative (Albany AI) will significantly expand New York’s capacity in this major emerging field.
