  • Srini Devadas, the Edwin Sibley Webster Professor in MIT's Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department and members of his group, the Computation Structures Group, have designed a process for thwarting memory-access attacks to steal data. Their scheme includes custom-built reconfigurable chips, now moving into fabrication.
  • MIT Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department Head Anantha Chandrakasan and Associate Department Heads Bill Freeman, Silvio Micali, and David Perreault announced in February 2015, the promotions of eight faculty members in the department. Professors Adalsteinsson, Daniel, Golland, and Torralba are promoted to full professor. Professors Chilpala, Polyanskiy and Vaikuntanathan are promoted to associate professor. The promotions are effective July 1, 2015. Read more.
  • This week, at the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ (IEEE's) International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), the group of Anantha Chandrakasan, EECS Department Head and the Joseph F. and Nancy P. Keithley Professor in Electrical Engineering at MIT, will present a new transmitter design that reduces power leakage when transmitters are idle — greatly extending battery life and ultimately enabling the potential for the transmission of data needed for the "Internet of things".

  • Five members of the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department of a total of eight MIT faculty have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering including Hari Balakrishnan, Sangeeta Bhatia, Anantha Chandrakasan, L. Rafael Reif and Daniela Rus. Read more.
  • Two EECS Department faculty Jesus del Alamo and Rajeev Ram are recipients of Bose Grants — out of five MIT professors selected for research projects that are high-risk yet potentially having significant impact. The grants are given in memory of Amar Bose, electrical engineering professor, who taught in EECS and founded the Bose Corporation. Read more.
  • A large group of researchers including EECS faculty Dirk Englund, Karl Berggren and their respective labs, the Quantum Photonics Group and the Quantum Nanostructures and Nanofabrication Group have collaborated with colleagues at IBM and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory to edge closer to building effective quantum-computational circuits. Read more.
  • Vivienne Sze, core member of the Microsystems Technology Laboratories (MTL), principal investigator in the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) and the Emanuel E. Landsman (1958) Career Development Professor in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department (EECS), has received a 2014 Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Young Faculty Award (YFA). Read more.
  • 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.
  • 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.
