Message from Department Chair

Ray ChenGreetings and welcome to the Electrical Engineering (EE) Department at San José State University. We pride ourselves as being a prominent education and applied research institute serving as the cradle of engineering talent for the Silicon Valley.

Please spend a few moments to explore the excellent faculty, solid hands-on training, great laboratories and facilities we have to offer. The EE department has been consistently rated by US News and World Report magazine as among the top universities offering Bachelor and Master degrees. With our location in the heart of Silicon Valley, we provide a talent pool in advanced technology for all high-tech industries in all areas of electrical and electronic engineering; and reciprocally we receive collaboration, support and feedback from industries that keep us at the leading edge of the technologies.

We are a department that advances with the progress of technology. We collaborate with Silicon Valley companies to bring up-to-date technologies into our curriculum and provide courses that prepare our students for all fields in the Electrical Engineering discipline. Companies can benefit from partnering with our faculty and students through creating synergies that leverage academic exploration and industry experience. Academic-industry collaboration will produce results that give industry partner an edge in today's market and tomorrow's new frontiers. The core strength of our faculty and curriculum covers semiconductor electronics, wireless communications, Internet technologies, image and signal processing, analog, digital and mixed signal circuits, embedded systems, automatic control, power electronics and sustainable electric energy systems.

As the regions of the world increasingly influence each other, we enter profoundly into the sphere of global economy. To prepare our students for this wide spectrum of competition, we must extend our reach to the innovations and technology developments happening worldwide. We are actively engaging in collaboration and cooperation in education and research with domestic and international organizations in both the public and private sectors, in order to further our presence and to feel the pulse of the global technology progress.
