MEng: Electrical/Computer Engineering

Electrical/computer engineering leverages the fundamental principles surrounding electricity to advance today’s emerging technologies ranging from semiconductor devices to advanced communication networks, from self-powered sensors to electric cars, from wearable devices to cognitive medical imaging, and from autonomous vehicles to smart cities. Students may focus on a single specialization within electrical and computer engineering, or build an individualized curriculum from a combination of complementary subfields within the track.
