Carnegie Mellon University


ECE strongly believes in coupling the theoretical concepts introduced in the classroom with hands-on experience in laboratories or projects.

Faculty in the department are involved in research that is cutting edge and multidisciplinary, and undergraduate students of all levels of expertise are encouraged to be involved in research projects. Undergraduate research projects provide the student with the opportunity to earn academic credit while participating in the research programs of individual faculty members.

Students that engage in research for academic credit may apply the units toward either their ECE coverage requirement or toward their free elective requirements. Please contact your academic advisor for specific information on how to register for research units.

ECE students can find open research opportunities on our Student Project Tracker website.
