Communications, Information Theory, and Coding over Networked Systems

This research area focuses on fundamentals of networked systems that communicate, coordinate, and compute. We define and seek fundamental performance limits and constructive algorithms that achieve these limits. As such, the focus primarily lies in the core areas of information, communication, and coding theories. The resulting design insights apply to future engineered systems including wireless communication networks, internet-of-everything, and distributed storage systems, or naturally occurring complex systems.

The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science was created in the spring of 2015 to allow greater access to courses offered by both departments for undergraduate and graduate students in exciting collaborative research fields.

We offer B.S. degrees in electrical engineering, computer science, computer engineering and data science and graduate degrees (master's degrees and Ph.D.'s) in electrical engineering and computer science and engineering. EECS focuses on the convergence of technologies and disciplines to meet today’s industrial demands.
