Electrical and computer engineers are the minds behind so many innovations we use every day. Cell phones, airplanes, solar panels, and video games are just some of the technologies dependent on the work of ECE graduates.
At Boston University, our students work on ground-breaking research that prepares them to become leaders in the field. Our research programs are one of the major strengths of our department, in part because there are so many possibilities for collaborating across disciplines. Currently, our students are working on projects that have the potential to improve disease diagnosis, solar panel efficiency, video surveillance, Internet performance, medical imaging, and more.
Electrical and computer engineering is one of the fastest-growing fields, and according to recent statistics, ECE majors are among the highest earners in the United States. At Boston University, students are challenged by a flexible, thought-provoking curriculum and learn from faculty members who are experts in the subject. Study ECE@BU and you’ll be prepared to succeed in graduate school, your career, and beyond.
