Electrical and Computer Engineering


Our research areas reflect the diversity of the electrical and computer engineering profession and range from the small (nano-scale electronic devices and embedded systems), to the large (control of spacecraft, computer networks and internet of things). Our faculty are involved in cybersecurity, health monitoring, antennas, and radar systems for defense and peace-time applications.

Graduate students are involved in all of our research activities and have access to state-of-the-art facilities such as the electromagnetic anechoic chamber, power systems insulation, optical systems, cybersecurity and signal processing laboratories.

These research efforts are aligned with national grand challenges in global security, healthcare technology, communications technology and information management.

Please refer to individual faculty webpages for more information on their research.
