Research Groups and Laboratories

Research Groups and Labs

Labs and groups are the lifeblood of the ECE research program, where faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students produce research results that lead to papers published in the world’s foremost technical journals and conference publications, patents, and even start-up companies. 

Areas of interest are often highly interdisciplinary–including integrated circuit technology, robotics, mobile computing and telecommunications systems, and neuroengineering. An alphabetical list of the School’s labs and groups is provided below.
