Paving the way for fifth-generation (5G) cellular communication, developing powerful and sophisticated medical diagnostic tools, improving the trustworthiness of microchips to keep computer hardware safe from cyber-attackers, exploring the outer limits of nanoelectronics — NYU researchers are doing all that and more.

If you’ve ever wanted to design robotic controls, invent new methods of generating green energy,  expand the boundaries of mobile communication, or apply your specialized skills to any number of other electrical products and systems, Electrical and Computer Engineering might be the course of study for you.


Current research activities in the department are organized into five major areas.

In both special-topic seminar series and regular weekly seminars, national and international visitors to the ECE Department present their latest research.
