Computer Engineering encompasses studies of hardware, software and systems issues that arise in the design, development and application of computer systems. Research covers a wide range of topics, from new nano-scale sensors to scalable and safe computer network systems.

Professors in Computer Engineering are currently working to answer the following questions:

  1. How might new nano-scale sensors enhance our perception of the physical world?
  2. Can we embed intelligent systems into the built environment to respond to human needs?
  3. Which network and computer architectures can scalably and safely process the world's information?

Research in this area includes:

  • Sensors
  • Polarization Imaging
  • Imagers
  • Fluorescence
  • Sensory Devices
  • Low Power Sensors
  • Optical Sensors
  • Image Guided Surgery
  • Ultrasound Imaging
  • Floating Gates
