  • Muriel Médard, professor of electrical engineering in the EECS Department at MIT and principal investigator in the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) has led a team to develop a new way to guarantee more reliable wireless reception. The team has improved wireless bandwidth tenfold by eliminating resending of dropped packets of data, often the source of network clogging. Read more in the Oct. 23, 2012 Technology Review article by David Talbot titled "A Bandwidth Breakthrough. A dash of algebra on wireless networks promises to boost bandwidth tenfold, without new infrastructure."
  • Calling it a glimpse into the future, technology news website CRN has hailed MIT EECS/CSAIL faculty and the new Wireless@MIT center as the source for seven new technologies that will impact (favorably) our daily lives. Read more...
  • A new center at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) called Wireless@MIT was launched Oct. 11, 2012. The new center, involving more than 50 MIT faculty members, research staff and graduate students and co-directed by Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department faculty members Dina Katabi and Hari Balakrishnan, will work toward addressing three critical areas of need facing the exploding use wireless communication -- the spectrum crisis, power supply issues, and creating new application solutions for smoother and consistent service.

  • This fall, the faculty and students in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) Department at MIT are coming together for a new program that has created a buzz since its announcement last spring. The Advanced Undergraduate Research Program — now officially called the SuperUROP — for EECS department juniors and seniors has already enticed over 200 students with more than 100 exciting research projects proposed by the department's faculty.

  • Anantha P. Chandrakasan, EECS Department Head and the Joseph F. and Nancy P. Keithley Professor of Electrical Engineering at MIT has been selected as the winner of the 2013 IEEE Donald O. Pederson Award in Solid-State Circuits. The citation for the award reads "For pioneering techniques in low-power digital and analog CMOS design."
  • Members (and graduates) of the Theory of Distributed Systems Group, TDSG, at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab, CSAIL under EECS/CSAIL faculty member Nancy Lynch, including Alejandro Cornejo, EECS graduate student, have developed a new algorithm that would allow Wi-Fi-connected cars to share their Internet connections.
  • Yury Polyanskiy has been selected to hold the Robert J. Shillman (1974) Career Development Professorship of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, as announced by EECS Department Head Anantha Chandrakasan.
  • Prof. Hari Balakrishnan and graduate student Keith Winstein have developed an alternative to SSH - a remote log-in program called Mosh for mobile shell - finally allowing for the mobile Internet. They reported their work at the Usenix Annual Technical Conference in Boston this month.
  • Academic programs for graduate students in the field of computer science lead to the Master of Engineering, Master of Science, Engineer's, and either Doctor of Philosophy or Doctor of Science degree. 
  • Indyk/Katabi's sparse Fourier transform (SFT) has been named to MIT Technology Review’s 2012 list of the world’s 10 most important emerging technologies.
