From the Chair

Welcome to The Edward S. Rogers Sr. Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of Toronto.

We are engaged in the pursuit and dissemination of knowledge across a wide range of areas of engineering and applied science — from the fabrication of atomic level structures with special optical properties, through to the technologies that have revolutionized our world, such as microelectronics, computer systems, software, and networks.

We offer undergraduate programs in electrical engineering and computer engineering. Our teaching laboratories provide unique hands-on opportunities to build things, and we teach engineering from the “you-must-do-it-yourself” perspective. In addition, our faculty members are engaged in cutting-edge research, and we offer opportunities for graduate student training that are among the best in the world. With more than 70 professors and 400 graduate students, this department is practically “buzzing” with innovative research ideas and projects. This, in turn, benefits our undergraduate program by enriching the course content and providing valuable research experiences for our eager undergrads.

Please feel welcome to explore this website for a glimpse of our research and teaching activities. We hope to be able to welcome you in person to our department, as a student, as a colleague, or as a visitor.
