Many of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering’s research projects are housed under our two esteemed research centers: the Center for Advanced Technology in Telecommunications and Distributed Information Systems (CATT) and the NYU Wireless.
Current research activities in the department are organized into five major areas. Please visit the homepage of the faculty members to see more detailed descriptions of research labs and individual projects in each area.
Biomedical Devices and Signal Processing
Communications and Networking
Signal Processing, Controls, and Robotics
Energy Systems and Power Electronics
VLSI, Analog/RF Circuits, and Electromagnetics
The Center for Advanced Technology in Telecommunications and Distributed Information Systems (CATT) promotes industry-university collaborative research and development. Our mission, guided by the mission of our funding agency, is to create economic impact through research, technology transfer, and faculty entrepreneurship. The CATT is sponsored by the New York State’s Empire State Development’s Division of Science, Technology and Innovation (NYSTAR). Located at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University (NYU-Poly), long-recognized as one of the best engineering schools in the country, the center draws on the expertise of over 50 researchers. Our team consists of leaders in the fields of electrical engineering and computer science. In addition to NYU-Poly faculty, the center also draws on the expertise of key researchers at Columbia University and New York University.
The world's first academic research center combining Wireless, Computing, and Medical Applications
NYU and NYU-Poly have created several new faculty positions, have invested $3.5 Million in funding, and are providing an additional $4 Million in world-class research space upgrades to form a new center of excellence, NYU WIRELESS, the first academic center of its kind in the world. NYU WIRELESS is an interdisciplinary research center that is equipped to develop revolutionary circuits and systems for several business sectors, including the wireless industry, the distributed computing and data center industry, and the medical profession. NYU WIRELESS brings together faculty and students with expertise in millimeter wave wireless communications and circuits, distributed networking and computing, and many branches of medicine. Just launched this year, already there are 24 faculty and 100 graduate and undergraduate students participating in this new interdisciplinary center.
