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.

Advances in the so-called internet of things have put amazing technology in the hands of many Canadian households, but what happens when those trendy tech products give away your secrets?
An international study by data protectors, including the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario, showed that six in 10 “Internet of Things” devices don’t propertly tell customers how their data is being used.
