Our mission is to provide ECE students with an experimental platform for a hands-on experience of applying engineering concepts to real-world scenarios. We invite students to join us in fostering an educational journey where theory meets practice and innovation thrives.

The Edward S. Rogers Sr. Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering Teaching Laboratories are located across three buildings in 11 different locations.

Our laboratories are fitted with advanced equipment that caters to the diverse needs of students. A combination of industry-standard hardware and software along with customized components that support the study of photonics, microwaves, control and robotics, and more.


We remain dedicated to actively upgrading and revitalizing our Teaching Labs with the most industry-relevant equipment to ensure you have the best interactive learning environment. Please review the lab safety & operational manual for each lab you attend.

Computer Access

You access ECE undergrad Windows PCs through your ECF account, not your campus UTORid account. If you are a first-time user or TA, follow this procedure to activate your ECF account. If you have forgotten your ECF password, you can reset it online.

Some lab PCs are available after hours. Visit the specific lab’s page for timetables and information on how to access the computers.

Safety Notes

Safety is a critical requirement in engineering, and it is a top priority in all ECE Teaching Labs. Before using the laboratory facilities, please read our safety manuals, which cover potential hazards, emergency procedures, guidelines for proper handling of equipment, and general Teaching Lab rules and regulations.

Everyone who participates in the Teaching Labs is required to pass an assessment and complete an acknowledgement and attestation form.
