    Probe Station

    This state of the art equipment allows for voltage and current measurements on a nanoscale level.   The probe station is used in the fields of VLSI, MEMS and Bio-electrics.


The ECE Department at GW offers ABET-accredited degrees in Bachelor of Science Electrical and Computer engineering. Within each academic program, students have the opportunity to tailor the curriculum to suit their interests and needs through a variety of electives.


ECE alumna and NASA astronaut Serena Auñón-Chancellor launches to International Space Station

SEAS cheers on Dr. Auñón-Chancellor as she launches for her first spaceflight on June 6.

Dr. Ahmed Louri has received $478,000 a National Science Foundation award for the project “Integrated Framework for System-Level Approximate Computing.”

The project is a three-year collaborative effort. The total amount of funding is $487,000, and GW’s portion is $262,000. In this research, Dr. Louri and his team seek to investigate and improve the advances and unique advantages of approximate computing to develop systems in both hardware and software (algorithms) that are low-power, high performance, and error-configurable.

ECE student Nicholas Jin awarded Clark Engineering Scholarship

The Clark Scholars program provides annual scholarships and leadership training for top undergraduate students in the School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS).


Keeping the Lights On

Dr. Dehghanian studies power system resilience in the face of extreme weather conditions or cyberattacks that can compromise national security, helping to improve the planning and operations of power systems to create a more resilient and sustainable electric grid and mitigate the consequences of these events.

Smart Contact Lens

Towards a Smart Contact Lens

The goal of this work is to develop a wearable head-up display. Our research will set a path the way towards functional microsystems that will superimpose information, via light, over a person’s field of view. In doing so, it overcomes the enigma of augmented reality, a known grand challenge for engineering today. With the ability to actualize augmented reality (AR), advancements in numerous applications will unfold. Incorporation of AR could be seen in various area, such as education, training, navigation, and cross-cultural communication. It could not only revolutionize human-machine-interface, but they could also bridge the gap between patients and healthcare professionals.
Magnetic Refrigeration Technology

Next Generation Refrigeration Technology: Magnetic Refrigeration with Nanoparticles

In the advancement of alternative energy sources, and the critical importance of the global warming, magnetic refrigeration is a promising energy efficient and environmentally friendly technology to replace conventional vapor-compression techniques. Our research aims to design, develop, and implement the first scalable commercially viable compressor-free magnetic refrigerator system.
