Program Spotlight:
Electrical and Computer Engineering

Electrical engineers are in the forefront of technology that continually transforms our rapidly changing world. From developing advanced navigation systems and self-piloted vehicles to designing “smart” homes and cyber security systems, electrical and computer engineers have a profound impact on how we live and how society will continue to progress for generations to come.

Students have access to cutting edge research laboratories, such as the Wireless Information Network Laboratory (WINLAB), the Microelectronics Research Laboratory (MERL), the Center for Intelligent Cyber-Physical Systems (ICS), and the Center for Autonomic Computing (CAC).

Electrical and Computer Engineering is one of the Rutgers largest engineering departments with 38 faculty, 840 undergraduates, and more than 240 graduate students.
