Research

Our research is actively conducted by a diverse team of faculty at all academic ranks, including several world-renowned scholars, along with Master's and PhD students and research associates.

In recent years we have expanded our research focus, growing our department in both size and expertise and strengthening our research and graduate programs, especially in the area of Computer Engineering. We have increased our research productivity while continuing to improve our research and educational infrastructure.

Our programs are aided by strong support from industry leaders, many of whom are members of our Industry Advisory Board or adjunct research faculty.
