Electrical and Computer Engineering is one of the most fascinating and exciting fields of study today. Due to the widespread applications of electronic and information technology, ECE is also one of the most general fields of study. At its core, ECE is based upon the fundamental physical principles that govern the flow of electricity, as well as the design methods that allow us to effectively harness those principles. If you’ve used electricity today, then you’ve benefitted from the field of ECE.
At Queen’s, our Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is recognized for its excellence nationally and internationally. Our department comprises 217 undergraduate students, 132 graduate students, 26 faculty members, 11 cross-appointed faculty, and 8 staff. We also have world-class research groups in such diverse areas as:
We pride ourselves in the excellence of our teaching and research, as well as the strong connection that we have with our students. Our undergraduate faculty-to-student ratio of 1:8, which is among the highest in the country, and which translates to a very direct and personal educational experience for our students. Our undergraduate students receive a strong common core which they are able to supplement with electives chosen flexibly from one or more Streams of concentration:
We invite you to visit and explore the opportunities in our department, both online and in person.
ECE recently wrapped up another successful academic year and bid farewell to a stellar fourth year class. At the annual end of year banquet, ECE undergraduate students honoured both professors and TAs with Student Choice Awards.
Several Teaching positions are available for year 2013-14.
Inspired in part by a Star Trek gadget and also by the $10 million Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE Competition to design and create a small portable personal device for tracking vital health indicators, a group of fourth year ECE students has created their own compact device to measure a number of personal health-care parameters.
ECE is looking forward to welcoming 84 new undergraduates into the program in September 2013.
Who says math can’t be fun? Certainly not Karen Rudie and her most recent ELEC 270 class. As a tradition, Professor Rudie shows her students a video featuring a group of Northwestern Students on the last day of class.
Congratulations to Mark Mitchell, Peter Davidge, and Luke Durst whose project, a Microwave Imaging System, supervised by Professor Carlos Saavedra, won first prize at the Queen’s IEEE Undergraduate Student Project Competition held on March 21st.
