Since its founding in 1893 by two legends, George
Westinghouse and Reginald Fessenden, the Department of Electrical and Computer
Engineering at Pitt has excelled in education, research, and service.
Today, the department features innovative undergraduate and graduate programs
and world-class research centers and labs, combining theory with practice at
the nexus of computer and electrical engineering, for our students to learn,
develop, and lead lives of impact.
