About

The Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at McGill University offers programs of graduate studies leading to a degree of Master of Engineering (thesis or project/non-thesis) or Doctor of Philosophy.

Overview

The research interests and facilities of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at McGill University are very extensive, involving more than 50 faculty members and 300 postgraduate students. The major activities are divided into the following groups:

  • Bioelectrical Engineering;
  • Telecommunications and Signal Processing;
  • Systems and Control;
  • Integrated Circuits and Systems;
  • Nano-Electronic Devices and Materials;
  • Photonic Systems;
  • Computational Electromagnetics;
  • Power Engineering;
  • Intelligent Systems;
  • Software Engineering.

The Department is equipped with state-of-the-art experimental laboratories and there are numerous multidisciplinary research projects, so students are provided with an ideal environment to develop new technologies, discover novel phenomena, and design revolutionary devices.

Research Facilities

The Department has extensive laboratory facilities for all its main research areas. In addition, McGill University often collaborates with other institutions for teaching and research.

  • The laboratories for research in Robotics, Control, and Vision are in the Centre for Intelligent Machines (CIM).
  • Telecommunications laboratories focus their work on signal processing, broadband communications, and networking; these laboratories form part of the Centre for Advanced Systems and Communications (SYTACom), a McGill University Research Centre devoted to fostering innovation in the area of communications systems and technologies via advanced research and training of highly qualified personnel.
  • The Integrated Microsystems Laboratory (iML) supports research in FPGAs, MEMS, micro- and nano-systems, VLSI architectures for digital communications and signal processing, mixed signal, RF, and microwave integrated circuits and components, simulation of integrated circuits and microsystems, integrated antennas, design for testability, reconfigurable computing, high-speed circuits, and packaging.
  • Antenna and microwave research, and optical fibre and integrated optics research are carried out in a fully equipped facility.
  • The Photonics Systems laboratory includes continuous wave and femtosecond Ti: Sapphire lasers, diode lasers, extensive optics and optomechanics, and sophisticated electronic and imaging equipment.
  • Solid state facilities include measurement equipment for magnetic and electric properties of materials, vacuum deposition, and RF sputtering systems.
  • The Computational Electromagnetics Laboratory provides tools for numerical analysis, visualization, interface design, and knowledge-based system development.
  • There is also a well-equipped laboratory for power electronics and power systems research.
