Labs & Research
Opportunities for federally funded research or partnerships with local companies allow students to explore the most advanced skills in electrical engineering. Facilities for research are extensive: The department has medical sensor and wireless radar labs, as well as a robust infrastructure for working with big data, the Internet of Things and other in-demand areas.
Get involved in faculty research studies funded by grants from prestigious organizations like the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Navy. Collaborations with institutions like Temple University Hospital also expand students’ opportunities for interdisciplinary and data-driven research. Access to substantial amounts of real data allows graduate students to perceive larger statistical trends and further advance their research.
Students and faculty in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering are engaged in a variety of high-quality research studies. As a graduate student, you may get involved with research areas such as
- embedded systems and system-on-a-chip design,
- intelligent interactive multimedia,
- intrusion detection,
- signal processing and radar applications,
- speaker identification,
- speech processing, and
- visualization and fault detection in multicasting networks.
