Duke's advanced characterization and clean room fabrication capabilities enable multidisciplinary research and education for the creation, characterization, and integration of materials, devices, structures and systems.
Learn by Doing
Hands on, experiential learning opportunities are a top priority for Duke engineering students. All students also have the opportunity to conduct independent research.
Quantum Dot-Based Sensors
Duke researchers are developing multifunctional detectors by synthesizing composite materials comprised dissimilar nanomaterials such as semiconductor crystals called quantum dots.
Quantum Computing - Really
Duke researchers are developing optical components that will be used to help scientists create and measure the sub-atomic events that lay at the heart of quantum computing.
Duke researchers demonstrated metamaterial-based electromagnetic cloaking shells and acoustic cloaks.
The mission of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is to facilitate the development of well rounded, educated, productive, and ethical individuals who are well versed in technology and in social, political, and environmental issues. Our goals are to develop within each student a robust repertoire of professional skills, to provide each with avenues for exploring diverse interests, and to launch each successfully into one of a variety of careers offering lifelong learning, service, and leadership within their own local, national and global communities.
