Electrical and Computer Engineering

Who We Are 

Our students have chosen a field of study with the potential to revolutionize the world in which we live.

Our faculty consists of excellent educators with national and international reputations in Communications and Wireless Systems, Signal and Image Processing, Software/hardware integration, Electromagnetics, and and  Fiber Optics.   

Other highlights include:

  • Dr. Anagnostopoulos coordinates AMALTHEA, a 10-week, summer research experience for science or engineering undergraduate students funded by the National Science Foundation. Its intellectual focus is Machine Learning and its applications.

  • Dr. Kepuska won Florida Tech’s Kerry Bruce Clark Award for Excellence in Teaching.

  • Dr. Kozaitis holds several editorial positions for journals in electrical and computer engineering.

  • Dr. Lail received a Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers. He was nominated by the US Department of Defense through the Office of Naval Research.

  • Dr. Otero  is an expert in software/hardware systems and the author of the textbook Software Engineering Design: Theory and Practice, which has been adopted by numerous instructors from national and international institutions and has been listed in the top 100 most popular Amazon Engineering Design books.

  • Dr. Murshid developed the field of spatial domain multiplexing that significantly increases the bandwidth of optical fibers.

  • Dr. Saqib has recently established a hardware and embedded systems security laboratory and is a leading authority in that field.

  • Dr. Smith holds many patents in the areas of advance image, signal processing and high performance computing.


Our Industrial Advisory Board is composed of leaders of local industry and government who provide a window on developments in the electrical and computer engineering field and the part that our department can play in those developments.
