About The Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering & Technology

Learning environment

  • State-of-art lab facilities e.g. 50 GHz vector network analyzer, 40 GHz spherical near-field scanner and clean room, which reflects the latest technology trends in industry. 

  • Small size class teaching environment with all classes taught by professors. 

  • Comprehensive theoretical investigation and practical hands-on learning experience e.g. modeling, simulation, and experimentation, to well prepare students for future career. 

Research opportunities

  • On-going world changing research in different fields including Communications, 5G Wireless Networks, Internet of Things (IoT), Renewable Energy, Semiconductor IC Fabrication, Artificial Intelligence (AI)/Machine Learning, Robotics/Automation etc. 

  • Over two million grants in research grants and equipment acquisition in recent years. 

  • High impact research publications by students and faculties on top ranked journals including IEEE Transactions in 7 different areas.

Student’s life and future career

  • Graduates are hired by leading companies and US government agency such as IBM, Apple, Northrop Grumman, Honeywell Aerospace, NASA, Qualcomm, Samsung, Seagate, Medtronics etc. 

  • Numerous Internship opportunities in the twin cities and south Minnesota regions. 

  • Undergraduate with good academic standing can be admitted to the five-year BS/MS combined program directly after the junior year. 

  • Student organizations such as IEEE, Society of Women in Engineering (SWE), and Learning Communities to develop student’s leadership.
