World-recognized research across the broad spectrum of electrical and computer engineering while being dedicated to the education and mentoring of undergraduate and graduate students
New University-Wide Research Institutes
Aligned with Northeastern's vision for interdisciplinary, collaborative discovery, the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is leading two new university-wide research institutes, including the Institute for the Wireless Internet of Things, and the Institute for Experiential Robotics.
NSF CAREER Award to Use Ultra-low power Analog Computing Circuits to develop ML hardware for Biomedical Devices
ECE Assistant Professor Aatmesh Shrivastava received a $500K NSF CAREER award for “An Ultra-low Power Analog Computing Hardware Design Framework for Machine Learning Inference in Edge Biomedical Devices”.
Engineering in Action
Making Notable Advancements in Neuro-Engineering
Electrical & Computer Engineering student Spencer Lake Jacobs-Skolik shares his experience leading research, becoming a published author, and earning a Goldwater Scholarship – all as an undergraduate. Learn how Northeastern University’s College of Engineering provides research opportunities you can’t find anywhere else, and how those experiences prepare passionate students for successful careers.
World Renowned Co-op Program
Sofia Vanessa Benitez Quevedo, BS, electrical engineering, completed three co-ops near and far including iRobot as a systems engineer, Flex in California working on emerging tech on the internet of things, and Starry, a start up in Boston using cutting-edge technology for the next generation.
Getting a Competitive Edge on Co-op
Noah Lichtenstein, BS, computer engineering and computer science, says the integrated way of learning and experience with co-op will allow him to jump in to a job when he graduates. So far he’s had a co-op at Starry, an internet startup, and Amazon Robotics as a firmware engineer, and feels this experience will give him a decent leg up.
ECE Assistant Professor Alireza Ramezani, in collaboration with Khoury Assistant Professor Lawson Wong and Koushil Sreenath from the University of California-Berkeley, is leading a $1M NSF grant for “Design, Flight Control, and Autonomous Navigation of Bioinspired Morphing Micro Aerial Vehicles for Operation in Confined Spaces.”
ECE researchers had their research on “Dynamic Spectrum Sharing between Active and Passive Users Above 100 GHz” published in the first issue of Nature Communications Engineering journal.
The College of Engineering Departmental Co-op team was proud to celebrate the 9th Annual Co-op Awards with our recipients on May 16, 2022, at the Cabral Center in the John D. O’Bryant African-American Institute. These awards celebrate the exemplary work of a select group of undergraduate and graduate students who have shown great promise and […]
ECE/Bouve Associate Professor Kris Dorsey was awarded a $500K NSF CAREER award for “Rigidity tuned elastomer origami tessellations for fast, reconfigurable, and soft mechanoreceptors.”
