Research

The Edward S. Rogers Sr. Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering is Canada’s top-ranked ECE department (QS 2015), and one of the largest. We are home to 100 active and Emeritus professors, more than 1,400 undergraduate and 600 graduate students. Many of our faculty members are world leaders in their fields—among their ranks are 25 Fellows of the IEEE, nine Fellows of the Royal Society of Canada, 11 Fellows of the Canadian Academy of Engineering, and four E.W.R. Steacie Fellows, a prize awarded to the brightest and most promising scientists and engineers from across the country. ECE is a hotbed of research commercialization, with more than 150 inventions disclosed and 40 patents filed over the past five years—by far the most productive department for new inventions at the University of Toronto. We also fostered 11 start-up companies spun out of ECE research in the same period.
