The scientific activities at the ECE department are led by internationally recognized faculty members in various majors of electrical and computer engineering. These faculty members are diverse in the sense of their academic rank, specialized field. Currently, about 74 faculty members serving the education and research responsibilities at the ECE department. The department also actively hires post-doctoral fellows to efficiently extend and support the associated research activities.
The ECE department has worked closely with national industries ever since it was established in 1977. Making engineering knowledge accessible to the industry has been considered as an important task in the ECE department. This task is fulfilled by training skillful and knowledgeable electrical and computer engineers as well as various industrial collaborations to support the needs of companies for high-tech solutions and systems. At the same time, the industrial partners participate in practical education by making it possible for the students of the ECE department to acquire practical experiences at the site through internship opportunities and graduate projects. In recent years, the ECE department has had several agreements and collaborations with leading companies such as Mobarakeh steel co., Isfahan steel co., Isfahan regional electric co., Niroo research institute (NRI), information and telecommunication research center (ITRC), telecommunication infrastructure company (TIC) of Iran ministry of ICT, and Isfahan urban railway organization, just to name a few.
International collaborations are one of the keys to achieving the mission of the ECE department. Therefore, establishing and extending such collaborations are actively chased and appreciated in the department. Faculty members, graduate, and undergraduate students are involved in international cooperation in different ways. Every year, several faculty members pay scientific visits to top universities in the world to extend their international network. Furthermore, the department provides Ph.D. students with facilities to spend their sabbatical at the top universities in the world. The joint research projects can be considered as another aspect of the international collaborations of the department. Also, frequent invited talks by the pioneers in various relevant fields are organized in the ECE department. The role of the students can be further highlighted by noting the active representations of student branches of international institutes/associations related to electrical and computer engineering such as the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
