Welcome to the website of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. The School's overarching vision is to lead in the creation and development of intellectual and human capital in electrical and computer engineering and their applications, in order to foster the technological, economic, and social enrichment of the State of Georgia, the nation, and the world. Our goals in support of this vision are to:

  • be recognized as one of the very best programs of electrical and computer engineering education, research, and its transfer to the community at large; 
  • be recognized as a place that encourages excellence and diversity in thought and endeavor, while providing a nurturing environment for continued professional advancement of our staff and faculty; 
  • provide degree and continuing education programs that produce graduates who are well-prepared to enter and assume leadership roles in the profession; and 
  • provide research and intellectual resources to address problems facing the industry and the world, while advancing the boundaries of disciplinary and multidisciplinary research and its applications. 

It is in this context that ECE works to advance Georgia Tech's strategic mission to define the technological research university of the 21st century. As you navigate through this site, I hope you will see how our world-class faculty and staff, gifted students, and educational and research programs enable us to achieve these goals. 

Thank you for visiting our site.
