murat tanikWelcome to the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UAB! Over the past 35 years, our department has produced highly trained electrical engineers for a variety of professional fields. While the quality of our program has been constant, the department has changed over time in order to meet the changing needs of the discipline and our community.

We have a strong focus on undergraduate education, with opportunities for undergraduate students to participate in meaningful research projects, interact with professionals through IEEE, and graduate from an ABET-accredited program. We also offer graduate degrees with a strong emphasis on research and publication. Our newest area of growth is STEM outreach.

As a department we believe in helping develop the next generation of electrical and computer engineers to participate in social and cultural transformations, and to live ethically, creatively and fully using his or her potentially, by encouraging the civilizing effect of science, developing satisficing solutions, and sharing prosperity.

We hope you will join us as we continue to improve upon the successes we have had. I look forward to talking to you about the role you can play in our program.
