Points Of Pride

  • The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is led by seven Fellows of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Drs. Tarek El-Ghazawi, Robert Harrington, Roger Lang, Ahmed LouriSuresh Subramaniam and Mona Zaghloul. The faculty of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering conduct cutting-edge research in the areas of computer and electrical engineering.
  • Drs. Tian Lan, Howie Huang, and Suresh Subramaniam are developing algorithms to optimize resource allocation and pricing in cloud computing. Once the team publishes its results, providers such as AT&T, Amazon, Google, and others will be free to use the algorithms in their data centers.
  • GW is a founding member of the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Center for High-Performance Reconfigurable Computing (CHREC). CHREC is comprised of more than 30 leading organizations in the academic, industrial, and government sectors working on reconfigurable, adaptive computing for a broad range of missions, from satellites to supercomputers.
  • Dr. Guru Venkatarami received a prestigious National Science Foundation CAREER grant for his research to develop an integrated hardware-software approach to overcome performance bottlenecks in multi-core processors and to improve their efficiency.
  • Dr. Howie Huang received a National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER award, the most prestigious award that the NSF gives to junior faculty, for this research project  "Hardware Error Resilient Virtualization Infrastructure."
  • Dr.  Volker Sorger has received a Young Investigator Program (YIP) award from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) for his research. The objective of his research project is to test the hypothesis that strong light-matter-interactions in electro-optic modulators and switches result in a significant performance boost for opto-electronic devices beyond classically known limits. This investigation is expected to enable nanoscale device footprints and to surpass the fundamental modulation efficiency-loss and speed-power tradeoffs.
  • Dr. Tarek El-Ghazawi was awarded a 2013 Humboldt Research Award for his high-performance computing research. This prestigious international research award is given each year to academics whose discoveries have had a significant impact on their own disciplines.
