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 Robotics Programs
Looking at robotics from three interdisciplinary angles, the new Master of Science in Robotics program provides a comprehensive understanding of the algorithms, sensors, control systems, and mechanisms used in robotics to help students stand out in the field and make transformative impact on society. A minor is also available for undergraduate students, providing a coherent foundation in the principles and practice of robotics.
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 Affiliated Faculty Peter Desnoyers (PI), Khoury College, and ECE Professor Miriam Leeser (co-PI) are the Northeastern University leads of $1.55M five-year NSF grant that is part a $5M total award in collaboration with the University of Massachusetts Amherst (lead) and Boston University.
Networking for Big Data: Landmark SC19 Demo Shows High-Performance Delivery of Large Hadron Collider (LHC) Data with NDN
The multi-university (Northeastern, Caltech, and Colorado State) research SANDIE team led by ECE Professor Edmund Yeh has finished a landmark demo at SC19 in Denver.
ECE Assistant Professor Stratis Ioannidis gave a talk on “Adaptive Cache Networks with Optimality Guarantees” at Networking@Scale.
