WPI's 电 and 计算机工程 (ECE) Department, located in the historical 阿特沃特肯特实验室, is a community of world-class faculty and 学生 conducting research on diverse subjects including machine learning, cryptography and information security, 信号处理, 自主车辆, 聪明健康, 假肢控制, analog and digital microelectronics, and wireless information networks. We have a strong tradition of making significant contributions to science and engineering, ranging from the invention of the negative feedback amplifier to laying the foundations of the first wireless local area networks.
通过我们的创新 理论和实践 curriculum, hands-on laboratories, and 澳门澳娱乐, the ECE Department continuously strives to develop the next generation of engineers who will develop new technologies and seek creative solutions to society’s most pressing problems. We pride ourselves on our culture of creative scholarship; faculty, 学生, and staff work closely together and encourage each other through challenges both in the classroom and in life.
帕特里克Schaumont, professor of electrical and computer engineering, was included in 《澳门澳娱乐》 regarding a story about COVID-19 contact tracing apps. The story explores the larger picture of contact tracing apps being developed nationally. Reporter Hiawatha Bray wrote: “WPI s援助 it’s developed a way to track location and time, while still concealing the identity of the infected person.” (The WPI community can also access the story 在这里.)
Spotlight on Engineering: Hardware Security 研究
帕特里克Schaumont, professor of electrical and computer engineering, is an expert in hardware security. 作为维尔南实验室的一部分, w在这里 several key experts are working on various perspectives of secure system design, he aims to develop designs and prototypes and methods and tools. Partnering with WPI experts in this field can help industry collaborators transfer their own ideas into viable products.
ECE Professor Boosts Engagement with Creative Videos
ECE professor Maqsood Mughal has been a driving force in the success of providing high-quality hybrid learning to 学生 throughout this past year. Learn more about Maqsood's expertise and how you can create interactive and engaging videos through OBS Studio in this blog article and in Mughal's YouTube video entitled: "Creating Interactive Scenes to Project on Zoom and Other Platforms Using OBS Studio."
Wireless Sensors for a New Prosthetics Device
泰德·克兰西教授, 当地一家假肢公司, and an occupational therapist with limb absence have teamed up to develop wireless sensors to improve the performance of prosthetics for individuals with upper limb amputations. “This wireless sensor technology will have a major impact for individuals with limb absence and allow them to control their hand and wrist prostheses,” 克兰西, professor of electrical and computer engineering.
Driving Straight into an Autonomous Future
With self-driving cars promising to become part of our everyday lives, one MQP team took on the challenge of retrofitting a traditional vehicle to become a self-driving automobile. Under the supervision of ECE professor 亚历克斯Wyglinski, team members built a modular platform, 使用激光雷达, which uses lasers and sensors to measure distance, 超声波传感器, 汽车, and a high-performance computing module that can make any ground vehicle drive autonomously.
