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 was named recently as a winner of a Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE), a very prestigious award bestowed on scientists and engineers by the US government.
The new project is titled RANC: A Residue Arithmetic Nanophotonic Computer. The goal of the project is to develop an integrated photonics computing system (from device to architecture) based on the residue number system (RNS) to achieve orders of magnitude improvements in computational speed per watt, over the current state-of-the-art, while again computing at the speed of the light.
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.
