Research Areas

ECE ResearchThe ECE Department, faculty offices, and teaching and research laboratories are located in Barrows Hall and in the adjoining Engineering & Science Research Building (ESRB). The ESRB also houses the Laboratory for Surface Science and Technology (LASST), a interdisciplinary research unit exploring advanced materials spanning the spectrum from basic science to applied technology. The ESRB opened its doors July 2004 and contains state-of-the-art research facilities, including a microfabrication cleanroom. The ECE Department provides opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to become members of the following Research Groups:

Computer Engineering


Microwave Acoustics: Propagation and Devices

Microfabricated Sensors, Instruments, and Systems

Intelligent Systems

  • Neural Networks – Fuzzy Logic – Computer Vision


Reaearch Education and Training Programs

A number of department faculty and students in collaboration with other University of Maine Departments and Units, such as LASST and Spatial Information Science and Engineering, participate in NSF funded programs that focus on innovative education and research opportunities for its students, high school students, and teachers. These are:

  • NSF ITEST: Inquiry-based Dynamic Earth Applications of Supercomputing (IDEAS)
  • IGERT: Functional Genomics
  • IGERT: Sensor Networks
