Moore Courtyard


Welcome reception followed by poster session and lab tours

Electrical Engineering (EE) at Caltech has a record of excellence and innovation. Many distinguished leaders in the field over the last century received their training at Caltech. As a discipline, EE has had a huge impact on the technologies that define modern-day life and society. EE at Caltech emphasizes both the fundamentals of devices and systems, as well as acknowledging the multi-disciplinary nature of the field. Closely allied with Computation and Neural Systems, Applied Physics, Medical Engineering, Computer Science, and Control and Dynamical Systems, it offers students the opportunity for study and research, both theoretical and experimental, in a wide variety of subjects, including solid-state materials and devices, integrated circuits, biomedical devices, photonics, power and energy systems,wireless systems, control theory, learning systems, computational finance, signal processing, data compression, communications, and computational vision.
