About Us

Welcome to the School of Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.

The School, which incorporates the Institute of Electronics, Communications and Information Technology (ECIT) and the Centre for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT) has an academic staff of over 50. It comprises almost 250 students undertaking PhD and Masters programmes, 35 research fellows and nearly 1000 undergraduates across ten degree pathways.

Amongst the School's defining characteristics are its strong links with a wide range of industries in the form of collaborative projects and student placements.  The curriculum is also heavily informed by industry representatives who sit on an advisory board within the School. Moreover, the School's research is well supported by research grants from the EU, UK Research Councils and local government.

EEECS at Queen's has been the launch-pad for many an exceptional career. Our graduates are in high demand by software companies, the automotive and aeronautical industries, financial services, power companies and computer games developers to name but a few.  On average, employment success rates for graduates from our School are greater than 80% after just six months, a statistic not bettered by many others.
