The School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) has a rich history of research and education that dates back to 1888. Many landmark innovations in radiotelephony, television, and electric power were developed by Purdue faculty; innovations that have helped shape the modern world. In that same tradition of research excellence, ECE faculty continues to pioneer new technical frontiers. With more than 70 of the nation's finest researchers, ECE faculty and students publish hundreds of papers every year in top quality journals and conference proceedings.

Mission Statement

"The Purdue School of Electrical and Computer Engineering enriches society and advances engineering in three crucial ways: by educating electrical and computer engineering students from Indiana, the country, and the world so that they have the knowledge, ability, and skills to innovate, excel and lead in their professions; by contributing to the benefit of humanity through the discovery of fundamental knowledge, the solution of current technological problems, and the development of new applications; and finally, by sharing knowledge and expertise through meaningful engagement within and outside the Purdue community."

Birck Nanotechnology Center (BNC)

The Birck Nanotechnology Center has its birthplace in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University. It is dedicated to leverage advances in nanoscale science and engineering to create innovative nanotechnologies addressing societal challenges and opportunities in computing, communications, the environment, security, energy independence, and health.

The BNC opened in July of 2005. This $58 million facility comprises convert|187000|sqft|m2, providing office space for 45 faculty, 21 clerical and technical staff, and up to 180 graduate students. The heart of the building is a convert|25000|sqft|m2|abbr=on. Class 10-100-1000 nanofabrication cleanroom, part of which is configured as a biomolecular cleanroom with separate entry and gowning areas and isolated air flow. The building also includes over convert|22000|sqft|m2|abbr=on. of laboratory space external to the cleanroom, including special low vibration rooms for nanostructures research, with temperature control to less than 0.1 °C. Other laboratories are specialized for nanophotonics, crystal growth, bio-nanotechnology, molecular electronics, MEMS and NEMS, surface analysis, SEM/TEM, electrical characterization, RF systems, instruction and training, and precision micro-machining. In addition, a unique nanotechnology incubator facility is provided for interaction with industry.
