Message from the Chair

Welcome to the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of California, Riverside. Having graduated our first class in May 1994, in May 2017 ECE@UCR will be graduating our 24th undergraduate class. In the intervening years ECE has grown to house about 300 EE and 250 CEN undergraduates, and about 200 graduate students. The 2016 US News ranking for the UCR ECE program was in the top 29% (#55 of 190) among all universities and top 26% (#31 of 121) among all public institution. The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering has 30 faculty members: 10 IEEE Fellows, 7 AAAS Fellows, 10 NSF Career Awardees, 3 ARO or ONR Young Investigator Awardees, 1 OSA and 1 APS Fellow. In 2014, three professors were president of their IEEE society. The latest NRC S-Ranking placed the UCR EE department in the top quartile. Research funding, exceeding $500k per faculty in contract & grant research expenditures, provides many funded research positions for graduate and undergraduate students.    More
