  • Three 2014-2015 Faculty Research Innovation Fellowships (FRIF) were announced on Oct. 7. 2014. The FRIF was established in 2011 to recognize mid-career EECS faculty members for outstanding research contributions and international leadership in their fields. Read more.
  • The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) seeks candidates for faculty positions starting in September 2015. Appointment will be at the assistant or untenured associate professor level. In special cases, a senior faculty appointment may be possible. Faculty duties include teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels, research, and supervision of student research. We will consider candidates with backgrounds and interests in any area of electrical engineering and computer science. Faculty appointments will commence after completion of a doctoral degree.
  • On Oct. 3 a panel discussion titled "Challenging Technical Privilege: How Race and Gender Matter" was held at MIT. Sponsored by Women's and Gender Studies, EECS, CSAIL, Office of Minority Education, and ICEO, the event provided a candid, open discussion on issues of Technical Privilege and Stereotype Threat
  • Microsystems Technology Laboratories (MTL) research scientist Luis Fernando Velásquez-García and his group have devised a new way for manufacturing nanoscale devices cheaply using arrays of carbon nanotubes. Their work, published in the IEEE Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems, promises a wide range of applications. read more
