Research Areas

The 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 for research in a wide variety of areas.
