Our Mission and Vision

Educate generations of engineers and industry leaders by providing transformative learning experience and the knowledge necessary to solve significant problems in high-tech industry and societyDevelop technical innovations in ECE and multi-disciplinary areas through high-impact scholarship and research.

The Industrial Affiliates Program’s goal is to provide a platform for research and industry collaboration. ECE hopes to advance educational training and opportunities while providing new industry talent, updates on cutting edge research and scientific exchange with our faculty. With an established connection between industry and department, students and faculty gain the opportunity to learn about industry, while affiliates are exposed to next-generation talent, new ideas and research directions. We are excited about expanding in this new and positive direction and look forward to collaborating with our IA members to foster great research, form strategic alliances and educate our students to meet current and future technology challenges.
