The University of Kentucky invites applications and nominations from outstanding candidates for the Department Chair position in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE). The ECE department has seen record growth in recent years, with undergraduate enrollments reaching 498, up 90% since 2007, and collaborative grants averaging over $7 million per year, with $3.5 million as primary. Planning is underway for a new building for the department as part of the university’s Digital Village.
The ECE department has strong research programs in multiple areas including computational electromagnetics, signal and image processing, power and energy systems, nanoelectronics, aerospace, and advanced computing paradigms. The 24 full-time faculty members are active in multidisciplinary institutes, such as the Power and Energy Institute of Kentucky, the Center for Nanoscale Science and Engineering, and the Institute for Sustainable Manufacturing. The University of Kentucky is a partner in the Kentucky Mutli-scale Manufacturing and Nano Integration Node.
Undergraduate degree programs are offered in both electrical and computer engineering. A majority of our students are involved in engineering experiences beyond the classroom, such as working with solar cars and small satellites. Graduate degree programs are offered in electrical engineering. The last National Research Council survey ranked the ECE doctoral program 32 nationally based on the S-rating.
