Welcome to Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Waterloo
Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) is Waterloo’s largest academic department, with over 2,500 students, 93 full-time faculty members and 50 support staff. In addition to offering undergraduate and graduate programs in electrical engineering and computer engineering, ECE provides academic expertise and support to Waterloo’s multidisciplinary mechatronics, nanotechnology, and software engineering programs.
Our research activities cover a wide range of fields, from high-voltage engineering and sustainable energy to breakthroughs in wireless technology that will enhance communications across our global society. Our faculty members and students are creating low-cost digital x-ray imagers to combat tuberculosis in developing countries, and building real-time embedded systems that will advance the design and reliability of consumer and industrial products.

Dr. Hamed Majedi and former PhD student and postdoctoral fellow, Milad Khoshengar have published their paper "A solid state source of photon triplets based on quantum dot molecules" in Nature Communications. This groundbreaking work is the result of a three-year collaboration between Dr. Majedi's research group and NRC Innsbruck and Bordeaux. The team has set a world record of producing photon triplet by any means.
