Message From The Chair

Welcome to the Helen and John C. Hartmann Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the New Jersey Institute of Technology.

Our Department with nearly 50 faculty and staff members offers strong undergraduate and graduate education and research programs. The ECE Department is known for its student-centered and practice-oriented education; we are committed to provide an outstanding educational experience to our students and prepare them for the highest personal and professional achievements. The state-of-the-art teaching and research laboratories are designed to train the future workforce and meet the challenges of existing and emerging technologies of the 21st century.

The faculty's research activities span all major areas of electrical and computer engineering, including signal and image processing, intelligent systems, communication systems and information theory, systems and controls, computer architecture, power systems, renewable energy, nanoscale electronic and photonic devices, and bio-systems. Our students have exciting opportunities to participate in our department's research projects as well as in various activities sponsored by the IEEE and other professional societies. Several research centers and laboratories provide a unique blend of resources and facilities to pursue research at the cutting edge of technology in active collaboration with leading industries. Our faculty research is supported by federal and state funding agencies (NSF, DOD, DOE, NJ CST, etc.) and industry as well (IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Intel, Samsung).

Our location in a  major metropolitan area offers unique opportunities for students to engage in co-op programs, internship, and research at many academic, industrial and government laboratories and research centers located in the New York City-New Jersey area.

With approximately 600 undergraduate and more than 300 graduate students, we are one of the largest and most prestigious academic department within the Newark College of Engineering. Our alumni find themselves in high demand for positions in corporate, government and education institutions. We are committed to bring our academic and research programs to the next level of national and international recognition.

I invite you to learn more about our department and the exciting experiences that await you here at ECE.
