Welcome to ECE - Electrical and Computer Engineering
The mission of the Electrical and Computer Engineering department is to provide relevant and unique advanced education and research programs to meet Naval unique needs, and increase the warfighting effectiveness of the U.S. Naval Forces, DoD and allied armed forces.
Our students include commissioned officers of the Naval Service, other U.S. and allied armed forces, civilian employees of the Defense Department and international defense establishments. Civilian employees of DoD contractors are also eligible to attend NPS in limited numbers.
A MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN, DR. DOUGLAS FOUTS
Research conducted by ECE faculty spans a broad swath of leading-edge technology which impacts most facets of the Defense Department's warfighting capability, ranging from secure voice and computer communication networks to advanced information warfare systems, guidance of precision strike weapons and shipboard electric power. Faculty address new challenges continuously as projects are brought on board to investigate the latest technical problems.
“The demand signal from the leadership across the Navy has never been as strong as the demand we’re getting for the skills that you are developing here.” “...It is an academic experience, but it is also an experience with your fellow officers, international officers and with the faculty, who you may reach out to once you get out there and ask for advice, and I think that’s a great thing.”
