Welcome to the website of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. Our vision is to explore, discover, create, and communicate knowledge in order to foster technological, economic, and social advancement of the State of Alabama, the nation, and the world, while educating individuals in the areas of electrical, computer, and cybersecurity engineering.

The ECE Department offers:

  • three ABET accredited degrees at the undergraduate level: Electrical, Computer, and Cybersecurity Engineering;
  • four degrees at the Master level: Electrical, Computer, Cybersecurity, and Software Engineering; and
  • two degrees at the Ph.D. level: Electrical and Computer Engineering.

In education we strive to provide degree programs that will produce graduates who are well-prepared to excel in technical and leadership roles in our profession. We are proud of our commitment to provide a curriculum built on strong theoretical fundamentals and practical problem-solving. Each year, more than 140 undergraduates earn degrees in electrical, computer, and cybersecurity engineering. Our graduates are shaping the modern world by designing hardware and software components used in modern robotics, satellites, unmanned aerial systems, automobiles, and medical devices; by developing next generation computers and networks and tools of scientific discovery; or by securing and defending cyber-physical systems and critical national infrastructures.

In research we strive to engage researchers at all levels, undergraduate students, graduate students, and faculty to address important challenges faced by the industry and the society and to push boundaries of what is known today in the areas of electronics, communications, controls, antennas, computing and network systems, and cybersecurity. Our world class faculty includes multiple winners of the prestigious CAREER award from the National Science Foundation, three IEEE fellows, one APS fellow, and one SPIE fellow.

As a Department, we strive to provide a nurturing environment for continued professional advancement of our students, staff, and faculty. We serve our local, professional, and broader communities through our professional service, summer camps, continual education opportunities, and outreach activities.
