Welcome to Engineering!

We believe that visiting campus is one of the best ways for you to get a complete picture of the educational programs we offer in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. We invited you and your family to spend some time with us at NC State during the 2016 College of Engineering Open House. Prospective students and their parents are particularly encouraged to come and learn more about engineering at NC State.

On March 19, 2016 from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm, our faculty, staff, and students arranged an array of presentations and demonstrations that showed you the great variety of things you can do with a degree in electrical or computer engineering. Many of our labs opened their facilities to show you research that's going on in the department right now.

Additionally, a number of our fellow engineering departments opened their doors to visitors too. We encouraged you to stop by and pay them a visit as well to get a better feeling for the overall academic diversity offered at NC State.

The ECE Department hosts a free reception during the Engineering Open House for all visitors to the department. The reception will be held in the west atrium of Engineering Building II on Centennial Campus. Our faculty and students greet you there, where you can get a departmental brochure, grab a guide to our labs and displays, and fill up on complimentary refreshments.

Also in the reception area:
FREEDM FREEDM: Researching the nation's smart grid while educating the next generation of engineers. ASSIST ASSIST: Developing nano-enabled energy harvesting, energy storage nanodevices and sensors to create innovative battery-free, body-powered, and wearable health monitoring systems. ECE Student Organizations Student Organizations & Senior Design Projects: Prof. Greg Dunko and students, featuring the IEEE Underwater and Ground Robotics Teams, Elephant Tracking Collar, Sports Rehabilitation Knee Brace, 3D Full-Body Scanner, Light Up Hoodie, and Autonomous Greens Mower at The Troxler Design Center (Room 1003 EB II).
