Careers in Electrical and Computer Engineering
With your background in electrical and computer engineering, whether in circuits, communication, control, computer architecture, electromagnetics, signal processing, optics, solid state, or power, you can be part of most any industry of your choosing. Here are some broad areas that require your expertise:
ECE expertise is needed for the electronics, controls, safety systems, infotainment systems, and vehicle-to-vehicle communication, as well as designing hybrid, electric, and autonomous vehicles.
Next-Gen Electronics and Computers
The most powerful computers of tomorrow will run on technologies we’ve only begun to see as computing continues to demand new ways of thinking.
Information Tech and Data Science
ECE works to make sense of Big Data and patch holes in missing data. It can give you all the skills necessary to work any IT position imaginable.
Power, Energy + Sustainability
Energy is one of the most crucial aspects to our world today. From climate change to environmental justice to security and health, power and energy plays a major role in shaping the future.
Robotics and Autonomous Systems
Robotics and autonomy are key technologies of the future. The technology can enhance search and rescue operations, develop lifelike prosthetics, explore the space, and enable driverless vehicles.
Sensing for Health + Safety
We use satellites to monitor the impacts of climate change, embedded computers to learn about our health and our home, and sensing devices to monitor crops, detect problems in infrastructure, and ensure safe air and water.
Doctors collaborate with electrical and computer engineers to create better techniques and tools for everything from diagnoses to surgical procedures.
Electrical and Computer Engineers are involved in key aspects of Space research and travel.
