Urban Infrastructure: Smart Cities and Sustainability

Solar panels and wind farm

CoECS is committed to addressing the myriad issues associated with the expansion of urban cities. According to the United Nations, approximately 55 percent of the world’s population live in urban areas or cities; a figure expected to rise to 68 percent over the coming decades. This growth will require the successful management of biodiversity and ecosystem services to ensure a resilient and sustainable future.

IN-SOURCE: Sustainable Urban Global Initiative

Wireless Communications

Our faculty members study various wireless technologies addressing all aspects of receiving and transmitting information over the wireless spectrum. Areas of research include the advanced design of circuits and subsystems from RF through Microwave to Millimeter-wave frequencies for 4G and 5G wireless communications and biomedical applications.

Student Research Opportunities

Research Experience for Undergraduates

REU team posing

This 10-week summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program provides opportunities for motivated and talented undergraduate students to collaborate with our faculty and graduate students in research on methods of securing mobile devices and wireless networks using both software and hardware approaches.

Undergraduate Research and Entrepreneurship Program

Work on research or entrepreneurship projects in a group setting, under the guidance of faculty mentors. Our Undergraduate Research and Entrepreneurship Program (UREP), provides each research team with $500 to cover the cost of supply and materials.
