Six-legged first responders who can locate you in the rubble – brought to you by ECE.
Who would’ve thought that releasing a swarm of biobot cockroaches would be a good thing? What if we fit them with electronic backpacks to control their movements, analyze their surroundings, and communicate with aerial drones to find survivors in collapsed buildings?
We’re doing it. Electrical and Computer Engineers use bold thinking and tenacious ingenuity to find new ways to save lives while creating the unexpected.
ECE – The Future is what we do.

NC State’s Yaoyao Jia has been chosen to lead one of the new collaborative NSF programs, with a million-dollar grant aimed at improving our understanding of somatosensory feedback with the help of a cat.
Lobaton’s lab leverages AI to create a software integration for existing hardware to enable people using robotic prosthetics to walk in a safer, more natural manner on different types of terrain.
Three NC State ECE faculty members are 2019 recipients of fund awards from Chancellor’s Innovation Fund as they develop microneedle patches and fast chargers for electric vehicles.
NC State will be the first university in North America to establish an IBM Quantum Computing Hub as part of the global IBM Q Network, a collaboration of top Fortune 500 companies, universities and research labs working with tech powerhouse IBM to advance quantum computing.
New research from North Carolina State University's Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering offers insights into how far and how fast cyborg cockroaches - or biobots - move when exploring new spaces. The work moves researchers closer to their goal of using...
Researchers from NC State, including the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering have developed a wearable, wireless sensor that can monitor a person's skin hydration for use in applications that need to detect dehydration before it poses a health problem....
