The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECpE) contains two focuses. The focus on Electrical Engineering teaches students in the fields of control systems, electromagnetics and non-destructive evaluation, microelectronics, electric power & energy systems, and the like. The Computer Engineering focus teaches in the fields of software systems, embedded systems, networking, information security, computer architecture, etc.

The Department of Electrical Engineering was formed in 1909 from the division of the Department of Physics and Electrical Engineering. In 1985 its name changed to Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering. In 1995 it became the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

To keep up with the security needs being exerted by the ever-increasing complexity of technology, new ideas and approaches are needed. Once such attempt to address this is the Internet Scale Event and Attack Generation Environment (ISEAGE) at Iowa State University (ISU). ISEAGE is a next generation Internet testbed that hopes to provide researchers with the tools and resources necessary to address the every vexing security issues in today's world. Among the many challenges involved with creating an Internet scale testbed is how to realistically virtualize the thousands of servers that make up the various destinations or endpoints on the Internet. To specifically address this problem, the Internet Scale Endpoint Masquerading tool (ISEMasq) was developed. ISEMasq is an integral part of ISEAGE that enables a small set of servers with off-the-shelf software to pose or masquerade as any number of actual Internet destinations. To accomplish this, ISEMasq leverages various API functionality from the current and upcoming release of the ISO C++ standard, as well as other widely used and accepted third-party C and C++ networking APIs. The result is a highly reliable, performance driven, packet level network tool that brings ISEAGE one step closer to completion.
