Computing and communications technology influences so much of how we live today - the way we communicate, travel, make financial transactions, or receive medical care. A degree from the School of Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EEECS) squarely positions our graduates within an industry that will impact the way we live today and in the future.
We perform world class research across within the Queen's Global Research Institute on Electronics, Communications and Information Technology (ECIT), the Pioneer Research Program on Intelligent Advanced Manufacturing Systems (iAMS), and a core disciplinary research Cluster in Electronics and Computer Engineering (ECE). Our Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) research was ranked 5th in the UK in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework.
With over 500 active industry partnerships, our research achieves societal and economic impact, while generating hundreds of jobs to the local economy. The industry is extensively involved in all our courses through embedded teaching, placement or scholarships. Most of our undergraduates spend one full paid year working in industry as part of their degree. On average, employment success rates for graduates from the School are greater than 85% within six months, a statistic not bettered by many others.
Our School is the largest and one of the most dynamic in the University. It is accredited with an Investors in People Sliver Standard (the only School in the University) in recognition for our efforts in developing our people to excel and be deep thinkers and future leaders. We work in world class facilities, including a brand new £14m Computer Science Building, the ECIT Institute in the Titanic Quarter, and the Ashby Building.
The Institute of Electronics, Communications and Information Technology is host to the award winning UK Innovation & Knowledge Centre for cyber security, The Centre for Secure Information Technologies, ECIT also houses The Centre for Wireless Innovation and The Centre for Data Science and Scalable Computing.

Queen's Advanced Micro- Engineering Centre (QAMEC) is a centre of excellence for research and development employing silicon MEMS technology, FSS technology and novel device structures
The Computer Science Building
The £14m Computer Science Building fits the requirements of our world-class University and supports our outstanding students and staff in conducting leading-edge education and research, focused on the needs of global society.
The hub spans four floors and includes labs and break-out spaces, providing a meeting place for creative learning and a new mode of teaching.
The Robotics Society is a creative community of students working on exciting projects and learning valuable skills.
QCS, or Queen’s Computing Society, is an academic society which hosts social and academic events for all students within EEECS and beyond. Social events include pub crawls, laser quest, games nights and the annual EEECS Formal! Academic events include hackathons, industry talks, networking, cross-school/society events and more!
The aim of the EEECS Research Society (EEECS RS) is to enhance the quality of the research experience by providing a voice for the research community within the School and by promoting opportunities for career advancement, personal development and social interaction.
The School has been awarded the prestigious Athena SWAN Silver award in recognition of its work to support women in science.
