Welcome From Department Chair
Petar M. Djuric
I appreciate your interest in the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department of Stony Brook University. Whether you are a prospective student or an employee or simply a curious individual, I would like to share with you some basic information about the department.
The ECE Department offers two undergraduate programs, one in Electrical and another in Computer Engineering. The programs are both accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). The department has also an undergraduate online program in electrical engineering that is intended for working professionals. This program, too, has ABET accreditation. To graduate students, we offer M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical or Computer Engineering.
Our department has 28 full-time faculty members with research and educational interests in a wide range of topics. Many of our undergraduate courses have laboratory components where the students are exposed to experiential learning. Our faculty and students conduct cutting edge research in a number of areas including wireless and mobile networks, cloud computing, mobile computing, optical networks, computer networks, optoelectronic devices and systems, semiconductor devices, design of high-performance systems, nanoscale integrated circuit design, signal processing, computer vision, hardware for signal processing, analog and digital VLSI circuits and systems, cyber-physical and embedded systems, sensing systems, and smart energy systems. The work of the faculty and the students is regularly published in most prestigious international journals and conference proceedings.
The department is privileged to have the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues from Stony Brook’s School of Medicine, Brookhaven National Laboratory, the New York State Center for Advanced Sensor Technology (with roots in the department), and the Center of Excellence in Wireless and Information Technology. We are proud that several of our professors are recipients of the prestigious NSF Career Award. We also have many faculty members who have received prominent national and international awards and who are editors of respected international journals in their fields of expertise.
