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.
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 Professor Edmund Yeh gave a Data Science Initiative Special Seminar at Brown University about recent developments in data-centric network architectures and algorithms, and their application to large-scale data-intensive science networks and 5G wireless edge networks.
Northeastern University recently led the organization of ACM SIGMETRICS 2020, which is the flagship conference of the ACM in the area of performance analysis of computer systems, and the development of tools and innovative application of tools towards this end.
