Students will find opportunities to work side-by-side with our renowned electrical and computer engineering (ECE) faculty, researching the most pressing problems society will face in the coming decades.
This includes the design and development of modern smart-energy systems; advanced imaging-diagnostic techniques to address devastating illnesses such as cancer; scalable and secure wireless-communication structures for economically and geographically disadvantaged communities; and technologies to realize smart cities of the future, including the internet of things.
ECE Poster Day Competition
Our department provides an opportunity for students to showcase their research projects, and this year we had over 75 students presenting their research in a poster competition in a range of research areas including digital systems and VLSI; networks, communications, and cybersecurity; power systems and electronics; and signal and image processing.
Learn to Innovate
In Illinois Tech’s signature Interprofessional Projects (IPRO) Program, you’ll work with students from various majors to solve real-world problems.
Recent ECE-oriented IPROs include:
- Automotive systems innovation, including adaptive-cycle hybrid vehicles
- Smart microgrids within contemporary electrical generation, transmission, and distribution networks
- Auto engines as combined heat and power systems
- Mobilus: robotic standing wheelchair with an arm component
