What is Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) all about?

ECE is about innovation and creation of services and technology using principles related to electricity, magnetism and light. ECE is inarguably the driving force behind most modern inventions. ECE provides the intelligent technology platforms needed to address global challenges such as ageing population, healthcare, mobility and energy sustainability. ECE is thus a discipline that has plenty to offer in terms of discovery, innovations, and creativity. Be part of it to discover for yourself.
