Electrical and Computer Engineering

Electrical engineering students have the opportunity to participate in research that is propelling those changes with the potential to impact virtually every human system, from health care to education, transportation, defense and the environment. Significant research programs in electrical engineering focus on carbon, diamond and silicon nanotechnology, hybrid and embedded systems, medical image processing, photonics, radiation effects and reliability and robotics. Many faculty members are involved with the Institute for Software Integrated Systems and the Institute for Space and Defense Electronics, which support leading-edge basic and applied research important to critical commercial and government systems. In addition, several faculty members are affiliated with the Vanderbilt Institute of Nanoscale Science and Engineering and the Vanderbilt Initiative in Surgery and Engineering.
