Department Description

The School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering continues its upward trajectory, with strong funding and recognition of its research, growth in the number and diversity of its faculty, and continued achievement by its students and alumni.

Annual research expenditures are at near-record levels with more than $30 million in external sponsored research expenditures, more than $35 million in awards, and more than $150 million in proposals.

ECEE is home to the Quantum Energy and Sustainable Solar Technologies Engineering Research Center, an NSF/Department of Energy Engineering Research Center where ASU engineers are looking at how to best gather and distribute solar energy. The center already has produced a world-record high voltage for thin silicon devices, and its original five-year funding commitment has been extended to 10 years. The annual dollar amount will increase from $3.25 million to $4 million.

Our primary focus is the education of students, and they play prominent roles in our research, from graduate students, to undergraduates, to high school students. The electrical engineering graduate program is ranked 27 by US News and World Report.

Our online bachelor’s degree program is the only ABET-accredited, undergraduate electrical engineering program in the country that is 100 percent online. The demand among those who cannot come to campus is very strong, with enrollment doubling each semester, from 100 in fall 2013, the first semester the degree was offered, to 200 in the spring semester, to more than 1,000 in fall 2016. And the lessons we are learning are being used to improve the experience in on-campus classrooms.
