Electrical and Computer Engineering
We work with electrons, photons, circuits, and components, but people are our core.
Research and teaching revolve around electrical components, circuits and systems, microprocessors, software and hardware. We improve electronic and computer systems to make life easier and our students do the same.
The Bachelor of Science degree programs in Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering at Binghamton University are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission ABET, http://www.abet.org.
Mobile data, privacy protection and spectrum access
Assistant professor Linke Guo received three separate grants from the National Science
Foundation (NSF). All three research studies look at different problems relating to
mobile phones, including data collection and signal improvement.
