Faculty and students in GW's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) work together in classrooms and laboratories to develop technology-oriented solutions to many of today's real-world challenges.
Research Scientist Dr. Matthew Lumb is leading a research effort to develop a new, high performance concentrator photovoltaic module that is fully integrated with conventional flat plate photovoltaic technology and able to produce an extremely high efficiency solar module.
Dr. Volker Sorger is the lead principal investigator on a project to develop future nano-photonic neuromorphic processors inspired by the brain to overcome current computing limitations. He is working with Dr. Tarek El-Ghazawi and a Princeton colleague.
Their invention introduces a new class of reconfigurable computing devices that are capable of computing out of first principles by solving partial differential equations that are used for most simulations in science and engineering.
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers ABET-accredited Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering degrees. Within each academic program, students have the opportunity to tailor the curriculum to suit their interests and needs through a variety of electives.
