ECE – the future is what we do.

Meet Ragan Harrison

Meet Ragan Harrison, an ECE student who studied abroad at Shanghai Jiao Tong, aiming to improve his Chinese skills while continuing his engineering experience amid a different culture.

Supporting the Future of ECE

Investing in NC State ECE is one of the most essential ways to get involved. Support your Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering on Day of Giving 2019!

Brain Power

Ziad Ali aspires to combine electrical engineering and neuroscience to treat disorders such as epilepsy and Parkinson’s. The NC State senior heads to California in the fall to pursue a Ph.D. at Stanford thanks to a Knight-Hennessy Scholarship.

Blasting Off Into History

NC State ECE alumna will live and work on the International Space Station for six months, taking with her mementos from NC State.

Women in Science

April 10, 2019 | Springer Nature
Women have come a long way in enriching the scientific community – yet there’s still more to be achieved. We are recognizing women researchers who, through the scope of their work have contributed towards the development in STEM research. Featuring Dr. Leda Lunardi and Alice Cline Parker (ECE Alumni Hall of Fame 2017)

New study demonstrates radio signal benefits from decades-old theory

April 2, 2019 | Science Daily
“You can always improve signal quality by using a larger antenna, but that’s simply not practical for many wavelengths,” says Jacob Adams, an assistant professor of electrical engineering at NC State University and senior author of a paper on the work. “For example, antennas operating in the high-frequency range — 3 to 30 megahertz (MHz) — would be 5 meters long or longer. We’ve shown that DAM can improve signal quality dramatically when using much smaller antennas. How much smaller can vary, but we’ve demonstrated the concept using antennas one-third the size of a conventional antenna for a given wavelength.”

NCSU graduate Koch wraps up her first space walk; another set April 8

March 31, 2019 | WRAL Tech Wire
Spacewalking astronauts hustled through battery hookups outside the International Space Station on Friday in a major upgrade of the solar power grid. NASA’s Christina Koch and Nick Hague successfully installed a set of new and stronger batteries, continuing replacement work that began a week ago.

As one of only two institutions to be home to two concurrent NSF research centers, the home of the Department of Energy’s PowerAmerica institute, and leaders in the only North America IBM Q Hub, we are ranked among the top academic units engaged in scientific research in the United States.
