UCL Open Days


Electronic and Electrical Engineering

The Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering (EEE) was established in 1885 as the first department of electrical technology in England. It was founded by Professor Sir Ambrose Fleming, inventor of the thermionic valve and hence the founder of the discipline of electronics. That same pioneering tradition of innovation and excellence continues to underpin our work. We push in new directions across research, education and entrepreneurship, building on our long-established links with industry. We are committed to develop individuals and careers, across staff and students, developing and supporting our subject discipline.

Welcome to EEE! 

If circumstances were different, we would love to welcome to our department and show you around our labs. Since we're hosting this virtually, we thought we could give you a virtual tour of our department too.
