Prospective Graduate Students Tour ECE at Open House


March 27, 2006

Thirty-seven prospective graduate students attended the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department's Open House, meeting with faculty and current students, visiting ECE, and touring Pittsburgh.

ECE faculty members presented research overviews in three areas: José Moura discussed signal processing, communications, controls, robotics and artificial intelligence; Larry Pileggi covered circuits, computer-aided design (CAD) and very-large-scale integration (VLSI); and Jim Bain spoke about materials, devices and applied physics. The computer systems group, in conjunction with the School of Computer Science (SCS), also presented their research on architecture, networking, data management systems, and security.

A tour of the ECE Department featured some of the research facilities that Carnegie Mellon students use, including the Wearable Computers Laboratory, Nanofabrication Facility, Data Storage Systems Center (DSSC) Spin Stand Laboratory, Advanced Multimedia Processing (AMP) Laboratory, Center for Silicon System Implementation (CSSI), and Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS) Laboratory.
