Electronic & Electrical Engineering


The Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering (EEE) at UCL was established by Professor Sir Ambrose Fleming, inventor of the thermionic valve and hence the founder of the discipline of electronics, in 1885 as the first department of electrical technology in England. That same pioneering tradition of innovation and excellence continues to underpin our work. We push in new directions across research, education and entrepreneurship, building on our long-established links with industry and benefitting from our loyal and supportive alumni community. We are committed to develop individuals and careers, across staff and students, developing and supporting our subject discipline.

The Department is recognised as one of the leading departments for research in its subject area, worldwide. Current research areas include Information and Communication Engineering; Electronic Materials and Devices (including Nanotechnology); Optical Communications & Networks; Photonics and Sensors, Systems and Circuits. The Department is also part of the world-leading London Centre for Nanotechnology. Our experimental research facilities are a particular strength and we are well placed to support experimental research in the areas of:

. Electrons in Materials and Quantum Devices . Experimental wireless systems, sensing and signal processing . High-speed, ultra-wideband, optical communications systems & networks . Molecular beam epitaxy of silicon and compound semiconductors . RF Integrated Electronics

The Department has an extensive teaching programme, both at undergraduate (BEng and MEng) and Masters levels and a strong commitment to research led teaching.
