How To Get Involved in Undergraduate Research in ECE and Beyond



Have you heard about research… but don’t know why you'd do it?
Have you thought about doing research... but don’t know what’s involved?
Do you want to do some research... but don’t know how?

Undergraduate research projects are a great opportunity to get exposed to more cutting-edge engineering than you see in your classes. If you are thinking about going to grad school it’s also a good chance to see what is involved in graduate research. Finally, working on a research project can build skills and experience that will be useful on the job market.

Team from School of Engineering receives NSF Grant

Dr. Dario Pompili, Associate Professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), is the PI on a new NSF grant from the Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) Program. The title of the project is "Enabling Real-time Dynamic Control and Adaptation of Networked Robots in Resource-constrained and Uncertain Environments" and the award amount is $999,904. This project is in collaboration with Co-PIs Javier Diez and Jingang Yi, faculty members in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE).
 

Vishwanath Sindagi and Vishal Patel win best paper award at the 2017 IEEE International Conference on Advanced Video and Signal-based Surveillance

 ECE graduate student Vishwanath Sindagi and Assistant Professor Vishal Patel paper have won the best paper award at the 2017 IEEE International Conference on Advanced Video and Signal-based Surveillance (AVSS) held in Lecce, Italy for their paper titled "CNN-based cascaded multi-task learning of high-level prior and density estimation for crowd counting."  In this paper, the authors have developed a cascaded convolutional neural network (CNN) that can accurately estimate the crowd count from a single image with arbitrary crowd density.  

Yingying Chen receives 2017 IEEE Region 1 Technological Innovation Award

 Professor Yingying Chen has been selected by the IEEE Region 1 Board of Governors to receive the 2017 IEEE Region 1 Technological Innovation Award. This award has been conferred on Yingying for research accomplishments and leadership in localization, mobile security and privacy, pervasive computing and mobile healthcare. Yingying will be recognized with the award at the upcoming Awards Meeting of the IEEE NJ Coast Section.

 
Congratulations on this recognition of professional achievement!

SIP Seminar 2017

SIP Seminar Series

The SIP Seminar Series at Rutgers University–New Brunswick brings together a diverse group of researchers, both from within and outside Rutgers, on (approximately) a biweekly basis to discuss recent advances in signal and information processing. The term of “Signal and Information Processing” used within the SIP Seminars is rather broad in nature and subsumes signal processing, image processing, statistical inference, machine learning, computer vision, control theory, harmonic analysis, information theory, etc.
