Electrical and Computer Engineering

A proud tradition of inventing the future.

Smart phones. Electric grids. Space sensors. Cars with more intelligence than a computer from just a decade ago. The UCLA Electrical and Computer Engineering Department is part of a proud tradition of inventions that have transformed civilization.

The department is divided into three primary research areas: Circuits & Embedded Systems, Physical & Wave Electronics, and Signals & Systems, although much of our research is multi-disciplinary and features collaborations in various fields including medicine, physics, mathematics, and theater & film.
