  • Li-Shiuan Peh, associate professor of electrical engineering and computer science, receives professorship from the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology.
  • Associate Department Head David Perreault is recipient of 2015 R. David Middlebrook Award
  • Dimitri Antoniadis honored for pioneering contributions to integrated circuit microelectronics industry
  • New ultralow-power circuit developed by EECS graduate student Dina Reda El-Damak and department head Anantha Chandrakasan improves efficiency of energy harvesting to more than 80 percent.
  • Enabling neighbors in remote areas of the world that lack electricity to inexpensively buy power from a local solar panel owner, essentially creating their own microgrid, may sound utopian, but it is being developed by EECS faculty members Rajeev Ram and David Perreault and members of their research team.

  • The members of Voltage, a new group in MIT’s Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department, want to interest more freshmen and Course 6 students in the field of Electrical Engineering (EE). Sponsored by MIT IEEE/ACM, the group is working to build a cohesive network for students in both the EE degree program (6-1) as well as for students leaning to EE in the EECS degree program (6-2) — offering support and resources in academics, research and careers.

  • 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.
