Electrical and Computer Engineering Department
Our department features world-class undergraduate laboratory facilities and research opportunities. Our research is divided into seven focus areas featured below.
Computer Engineering and Cyber Security
Materials, Devices, and Micro-Scale Fabrication
The ability to fabricate structures, devices, and systems that are robust and precise is extremely important. It requires the development of advanced manufacturing processes that facilitate better, cheaper, and faster transition by removing limitations such as casting, molding, and masking. Our capabilities include cutting-edge micro-scale fabrication and characterization systems supporting our students and faculty in several fields. Our current projects include flexible electronics, reconfigurable antennas, meta-conductors, frequency selective surfaces, electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding composites, and additively manufactured MEMS transducers.2.
