A message from our head
Welcome to the homepage of the ECE Boilermakers! While you are here, we encourage you to explore what our students are dreaming about and how they realize their vision. Their outstanding quality, strong work ethic, optimism and amazing energy are truly inspiring to everyone on our campus and beyond.
Our top-ranked programs offered by about 100 world-class faculty members serve over 1,500 undergraduates (sophomores through seniors) and over 800 graduate on-campus and online students. Our computing and laboratory facilities are outstanding. Most of our activities are housed in what we call the ‘ECE Triangle,’ comprising three buildings: the Electrical Engineering Building (EE), the Materials and Electrical Engineering Building (MSEE), and Wang Hall. Faculty who work in experimental microelectronics and nanotechnology are based in the Birck Nanotechnology Center in Discovery Park, at whose heart is a 25,000 sq. ft. class 1-10-100 nanofabrication cleanroom (Scifres Nanofabrication Laboratory).

Michael and Katherine Birck Head and Reilly Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Dimitrios Peroulis is the Michael and Katherine Birck Head and Reilly Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University. In addition, Peroulis serves as a special adviser to the dean on online learning. Peroulis joined Purdue in 2003 as an assistant professor after earning his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan, where he also received his master’s degree. His bachelor’s degree is from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece. Peroulis was promoted to associate professor in 2009 and professor in 2013. From 2018-2019, Peroulis served as the Associate Dean for External Affairs in the College of Engineering. From 2014-2017, he also served as the director of graduate admissions for ECE as well as the deputy director of the Birck Nanotechnology Center. He became a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) in 2017 for contributions to MEMS-based tunable filters. Peroulis received the Outstanding Young Engineer Award of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society in 2014. In 2013, he was inducted into the Book of Great Teachers at Purdue. Peroulis has been a key contributor on developing high quality reconfigurable filters and filter synthesis techniques based on tunable miniaturized high-Q resonators. He is currently leading unique research efforts in high-power multifunctional RF electronics.
