Our faculty are at the forefront of discovery in their fields,
garnering accolades from international, federal and local
organizations. At EE, the faculty making discoveries in the lab are
the same faculty teaching in the classroom.
We challenge traditional notions of problem-solving and generate
creative and groundbreaking solutions. Our faculty actively engage
in research in the areas of signals, communications and networking;
solid state electronics; optics and photonics; and energy
From power generation and distribution to environmental,
manufacturing, semiconductor, optics and telecommunications
technologies, electrical engineering is everywhere. Almost
everything we use in our daily lives contains a chip that
implements a communication protocol or a sophisticated signal
We have made important and internationally recognized
contributions to engineering, science and technology, impacting
advancements in communications, energy, and medicine. Our faculty
develop socially relevant communications products, innovative
materials and devices that create greener, more energy-efficient
solutions for our world.
The article, "Wanted: In-flight Drone Charging, Itty-Bitty Spy
Cams, and More" discusses a recent Broad Agency Announcement from
the U.S. Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office, and
includes Professor Jornet's thoughts on how to achieve one of their
requirements: a mini wireless video transmitter.
Edward Furlani and Josep Jornet (along with UB professors Albert
Titus, Mark Ehrensberger, and Tom Furlani) will collaborate on the
project, developing a new class of programmable electrical
stimulation devices with integrated sensor and communications
technologies, for the Buffalo Institute for Genomics and Data
"Good Code Sets from Complementary Pairs via
Symmetrical/Anti-symmetrical Chips", co-authored by Ravi Kadlimatti
and Adly T. Fam has been accepted for publication in the IEEE
Transactions on Aerospace and Electronics Systems (TAES).
The program integrates energy systems research with research in energy control, efficiency improvement, demand side management, power quality and economics, renewable resources and integration, and smart grid communications.
