The Department of Electrical Engineering & Computing Systems has excellent research and teaching facilities that include state-of-the-art research laboratories in the areas of computer engineering, software systems, artificial intelligence, neural networks, image processing, electronic design automation, biomedical microelectromechanical systems (BioMEMS), bioelectronics and biosensors, millimeter waves and photonics, nanoelectronics, and optoelectronics.
Our broad and multidisciplinary thrusts have proved to be a significant growth opportunity in terms of research and funding success in all our major thrust areas and concentrations. We are proud that a number of our faculty are Fellows of the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) and many are also Fellows of other peer societies. We are also proud to note that a number of our faculty members have received the prestigious CAREER awards from the National Science Foundation. The different research areas of our faculty are outlined in the following pages as are the research thrusts that exist in the department.
Advances created by electrical and computer engineers and technologists and computer scientists have revolutionized medicine, communications, entertainment, business, transportation—indeed every facet of modern life. These developments hold enormous promise for society and offer remarkable career opportunities for people entering these fields today.
The faculty and staff of the Department of Electrical Engineering & Computing Systems are dedicated to graduating professionals at all levels, BS, MS, and PhD, with the knowledge, skills, and character to lead in this enterprise.
Through our own research, we seek to be examples to our students in our commitment to learning and in advancing the frontiers of technology in the service of people of the state of Ohio, the Nation, and the World.
