The Electrical & Computer Engineering department at Carnegie Mellon University.
Introduction
Welcome to the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University.

Dating back to the early 20th century, Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) has a long history of excellence. Our vision is to be a creative driving force at Carnegie Mellon and worldwide, of highest scholarly and entrepreneurial quality. Our mission is to inspire, educate, and produce electrical and computer engineers capable of tackling fundamental scientific problems and important societal challenges - and to do so with the highest commitment to quality, integrity, and respect for others. Our students are rigorously trained in fundamentals of engineering, with a strong bent towards the maker culture of learning and doing.

With just under 1,400 individuals, ECE is the largest department at Carnegie Mellon. Although the majority of our work takes place on our Pittsburgh campus, our collaborations extend far and wide. We are engaged in global collaborative research and teaching efforts through extensions of our academic programs and research in Silicon Valley, Portugal, Rwanda, China, and Singapore.

This is a dynamic and exciting field to be a part of and the ECE Department offers the very best programs for students at all levels. We hope you will get "infected" by the same level of enthusiasm and joy we all feel!
