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 and graduate programs in electrical engineering and computer engineering. Our teaching laboratories provide rare hands-on opportunities to build things, and we teach engineering with the goal of instilling a “do-it-yourself” mindset. Our faculty members themselves lead by example by engaging in cutting-edge research; this department is buzzing with innovative research ideas and projects, which allows us to offer opportunities for graduate student training that are among the best in the world. This benefits our undergraduate program by enriching the course content and providing valuable research experiences for our eager undergrads.

We invite you to read our department’s history and to explore 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.
