WiBotic is a UW ECE spin-off company co-founded by Professor Joshua Smith and alum, Ben Waters.
UW’s Robotics and Controls researchers are leaders in the areas of surgical and bio-robotics, haptics, smart cities, and network control systems. They collaborate with and hold secondary appointments in computer science and engineering, bioengineering, and the UW Medical Center, and are active participants in research centers such as the Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering.

UW ECE faculty and students are leading collaborative research aimed at reducing impacts of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Projects range from assisting with diagnostics, testing and tracking, to engineering ventilator technology, to developing targeted treatments for the disease.
Shana Moothedath and Yuanyuan Shi have accepted tenure-track assistant professorship positions in the ECE departments of Iowa State University and the University of California San Diego starting in 2021.
UW ECE researchers funded by the Center for Neurotechnology are partnering with Medtronic to impact a wide range of medical conditions.
In place of flat “breadboards”, 3D-printed CurveBoards enable easier testing of circuit design on electronics products.
UW ECE Assistant Professor Baosen Zhang and ECE alums Andrew Clark and Subhanshu Gupta all won a 2020 National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER award.
