The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is a keystone department within the Ohio State College of Engineering. Established in 1870, Ohio State has focused on engineering and the sciences since its beginning. The Department of Mathematics and Engineering was one of the original seven departments, and in 1882 the School of Engineering was instituted. Since the first engineering degrees were awarded in 1880, Ohio State has been an international leader in engineering education. The College of Engineering currently has 8,400 students enrolled in eleven engineering departments and the Knowlton School of Architecture, as well as more than 56,000 graduates throughout the world, practicing engineering and improving the lives of millions around the globe.
Among its 275 full-time faculty, 11 are members of the National Academy of Engineering.
More than 25 research laboratories address the needs of industry and government on topics such as electromagnetics, radar, lasers, antennae, ergonomics, biodynamics, advanced polymer and composite engineering, nanotechnology, manufacturing, gear dynamics, die casting and applied software technology. Faculty in the College of Engineering received $118 million in externally funded research in FY 2011, and the college graduated 452 students with master’s degrees and 137 PhD students in the 2011-2012 academic year.
