Spring 2021 seminar recordings


Electromagnetics is the study of the effect of charges at rest and charges in motion. This field analyzes, models and designs antenna systems, RF/Microwave circuits, fiber optics and electronic packaging.

Power Systems

Our Electric Power and Energy Systems program is one of the largest in the country with a variety of research expertise, simulation tools and experimental capabilities. The program has three subdivisions in power generation, transmission and distribution and electricity utilization.

Signal Processing and Communications

Signal Processing involves sound, images and sensor data, while Communications provides society with storage such as hard drives and connectivity such as the internet and mobile phones.

Control Systems

The specialty area of Control Systems covers the topics of: system modeling, control systems design, neural networks, adaptive and learning systems, fault detection and real-time control applications. These topics are applied in fields from aerospace and semiconductors to power systems and biomedical.

Physical Electronics and Photonics

Physical Electronics and Photonics (formally Solid-State Electronics) deals with circuits and devices built from and contained within solid materials. Some examples are microchips, LED and LCD devices. The field covers topics including: semiconductor devices and materials, characterization, photonic/photovoltaic devices, semiconductor processing/intelligent control, nanoelectronics, molecular electronics and transport and computational electronics.
