How is Remote Sensing Related to ECE?

What do pictures from the Hubble telescope, Doppler radar maps of an approaching storm, and CAT scans of the interior of your body have in common? All are examples of remote sensing — the field of engineering concerned with systems that extract information about an object without coming into physical contact with it. If you are interested in learning about the sensors (cameras, radars, sonars, X-ray scanners) and the algorithms underlying the beautiful images produced by NASA, the Weather Channel, or your doctor, then electrical engineering is right for you.

Is ECE right for me?

ECE Engineers enable earth-bound and space-related remote sensing.
