Research

The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science offers a vibrant research environment where the traditional disciplines of electronics, computer and software engineering and computer science come together to create unique synergy.

With over 70 researchers and over 750 graduate students working in many laboratories and groups, the School of EECS has built strong connections with local industry which results in a dynamic environment of collaboration and practical impact.

Opportunities for joint research exist at all levels, from exploratory research to contract research, from sponsoring a student to supporting a dedicated project, and many variations in between. University-based research can be very cost-effective for your company and in most cases your support can be used to leverage additional grants from government agencies resulting in a multiplying effect.
