Interdisciplinary research, plus a systems level approach, plus close ties with industry, all working together to yield relevant and timely research is the formula for success in ECE.
Ranked among the best electrical and computer engineering departments in the country, our research programs have always been at the forefront of the technologies that have changed the world we live in. Interaction with industry through individual faculty sponsors, through research center industrial liaison programs, and through departmental advisory boards, has proved invaluable in helping us anticipate the future technological needs of society.
Many of our faculty are themselves successful entrepreneurs and all of our faculty act as consultants to industry.
Another of Carnegie Mellon's strengths is our interdisciplinary approach to research and education. Faculty and students from across multiple disciplines work together seamlessly to solve today's multifaceted engineering problems and bring new technologies to the marketplace.
