Welcome to Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of Waterloo
Electrical and computer engineers shape the future through innovation. They develop and improve systems that serve everyday needs of society spanning from high-voltage engineering and sustainable energy, to breakthroughs in wireless technology. Our faculty and students do everything from creating low-cost digital x-ray imagers to combat tuberculosis in developing countries, to building real-time embedded systems to advance the design and reliability of commercial products. ECE - the future is what we do.
Our undergraduate program provides students with rigorous foundations in math and physics while exposing them to exciting applications early on in their program.
Our students come from all over the globe to experience our first-rate faculty, education, and research programs. Our graduates are among the most sought after in the world.
