Welcome

Ragu Balakrishnan

Welcome to the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University! I hope that the information in our web-pages will convey to you the dynamic quality of the programs available at Purdue ECE. Our programs are consistently ranked among the best in the country, and we are justifiably proud of our faculty, students and facilities.

Our computing and laboratory facilities are outstanding. The Engineering Computer Network (ECN) provides students access to a variety of machines, from PCs to supercomputers. The laboratory facilities, most of which are housed in the Electrical Engineering Building and the Materials and Electrical Engineering Building, are state of the art.

Over 80 faculty members serve on our faculty, and about 900 undergraduates (sophomores through seniors) and over 650 graduate students are enrolled as full-time students, making Purdue ECE among the largest ECE departments in the nation. If you are interested in information on our academic programs beyond what is readily available on our web-pages, please contact the Graduate or Undergraduate Offices (ecegrad@ecn.purdue.edu and eceugo@ecn.purdue.edu).

Sincerely,
Professor Venkataramanan Balakrishnan
