Welcome to ECEE
Welcome to the Department of Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering at the University of Colorado at Boulder. We are excited to announce our name change, which reflects our new research and teaching directions in the engineering of renewable and sustainable energy systems. This name represents our dedication and response to the world's changing energy needs. ECEE faculty and students are turning ideas into reality. We encourage you to investigate the ECEE energy curriculum, our research in renewable energy including wind, solar, and energy storage, and the Colorado Power Electronics Center.
