Electrical Engineering is everywhere! It is a part of every industry, from power generation and distribution to environmental, manufacturing, semiconductor, optics and telecommunications technologies. Almost everything we use in our daily lives contains a chip that implements a communication protocol or a sophisticated signal processing algorithm.
Our faculty and students have made important and internationally
recognized contributions to engineering, science and
technology. These discoveries have far-reaching impacts in
such areas as 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.
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.
Our faculty members are actively engaged in research in the areas of Signals, Communications and Networking; Solid State Electronics; Optics and Photonics; and Energy Systems. We challenge traditional notions of problem-solving and generate creative and groundbreaking solutions.
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.
