• Professor Dimitri Antoniadis has been selected to receive the 2015 IEEE Jun-ichi Nishizawa Medal “for contributions to metal oxide semiconductor field-effect transistor physics, technology, and modeling”. The medal, sponsored by the Federation of Electric Power Companies, is given for outstanding contributions to material and device science and technology, including practical application.
  • USAGE 2014-15 continues in its fourth year to give EECS undergraduates the opportunity to help build the community for future students while improving current academic and quality of life needs. Read more.
  • The Madrid-MIT M+Vision Consortium has been recognized by the Fundacion Tecnologia y Salud for accelerating health technology innovation. Dr Martha Gray (Harvard-MIT HST, EECS, RLE, IMES), M+Visión Director, accepted the award on behalf of the MIT members of the group. Read more.
  • EECS Department Head Anantha Chandrakasan announced the appointment of Ruonan Han as E.E. Landsman (1958) Career Development Assistant Professor. The chair was established through the generous contribution of Emanuel E. Landsman. Read more.
  • Madhu Sudan, principal researcher at Microsoft Research New England and Adjunct Professor in the EECS Department and the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab at MIT is recipient of the Infosys Prize 2014 in Mathematical Sciences. Read more.
  • EECS professor Ron Weiss has teamed with Mechanical Engineering professor Domitilla Del Vecchio and students from multiple departments at MIT to create a device that allows large biological circuits that behave with predictability nearly like that of electronic circuits. The work published this week in the journal Nature Biotechnology, has many applications -- particularly biosensing. Read more.
  • "Nearly everyone seems to carry a cell phone or tablet. But if Tomás Palacios’s vision of the future of electronics comes to bear, it will be increasingly difficult to separate electronics from all the other structures and materials surrounding us." Read more.
  • Dongeek Shin, Ahmed Kirmani, Vivek K Goyal, and Professor Jeffrey H. Shapiro, received the Best Paper Award at the IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP) 2014 held in Paris, France, for their paper “Computational 3D and Reflectivity Imaging with High Photon Efficiency.” Read more.
  • A new cybersecurity center made possible by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation will focus on cyber security policy -- one of three new academic initiatives (also at Stanford and UC Berkeley) aimed at laying the foundations for smart, sustainable policy to deal with the growing global cyber threats.
