The Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering (ECEE) Department at CU dates back to the 1890s and the earliest days of the Engineering College. There are 40 full-time faculty members in ECEE along with a host of adjunct, research, and jointly appointed faculty. Annual research expenditures are near $6M. Research grants from NASA, DARPA, the National Science Foundation, NOAA and collaborative industrial and military funding provide support for qualified graduate students. The program also has unique facilities and equipment for experimental and theoretical training, and for conducting subject-specific research. The department also offers two tracks of the Master of Science in Electrical Engineering completely online: Embedded systems engineering and Power electronics.
