Welcome to the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Rice University. Our faculty and students advance the state-of-the-art in a broad set of disciplines, spanning and redefining the limits of ECE. We create, innovate and design technologies in healthcare, robotics, computing, communications, electronics, and more. Rice ECE is at the crossroads of hardware and software. We integrate these tools to create better, faster, safer technologies to move humanity forward.
ECE at Rice is a diverse, dynamic community that emphasizes collaboration and teamwork between faculty, staff and students. Our commitment is to cultivate a learning environment where the diversity of ideas is valued. Learning from each other and respecting each other's views is an essential part of teamwork. We are dedicated to helping all students, faculty, staff, and colleagues to be successful. Our internationally recognized faculty are well respected for their research, industry accomplishments, and expertise in teaching.
The Electrical and Computer Engineering department offers two graduate degree programs. The Master of Electrical Engineering (M.E.E.) degree is a non-thesis, course-based program designed to increase a studentâ€™s mastery of advanced subjects. The Master of Science/Doctor of Philosophy (M.S./Ph.D) degree program prepares students for a research career in academia or industry. No stand-alone M.S. is offered.
The department offers two undergraduate degrees: the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (B.S.E.E.) and the Bachelor of Arts in Electrical Engineering (B.A.). Both degrees are organized around a core of required courses and a selection of elective courses from five Specialization Areas: Computer Engineering; Data Science; Neuroengineering; Photonics, Electronics and Nano-devices; and Systems.
ECE research is highly interdisciplinary and covers a broad range of topics. Currently, ECE research focuses on the following areas: Computer Engineering; Data Science; Neuroengineering; Photonics, Electronics and Nanodevices; and Digital Signal Processing, Systems and Wireless
Along with a vibrant and dynamic seminar series featuring visiting speakers, the ECE department annually hosts Corporate Affiliates Day, a vibrant research showcase. The department also hosts two distinguished lecture series: The Chapman Distinguished Lecture and the Gene Brice Colloquium.
