Research Groups

Analog and Mixed Signal

Analog and Mixed Signal Research areas in the Analog and Mixed Signal Center include high speed electrical and optical I/O interfaces, Clock recovery systems, RF transceivers, Harvesting circuits, RF MEMS, active and passive sensors, mmwave circuits, robust signal processing, low-voltage, high-performance analog circuit design; analog mixed-mode fault diagnosis of integrated circuits, Power Management and Bio-Medical Circuits and Systems.

Biomedical Imaging, Sensing and Genomic Signal Processing

The Biomedical Imaging, Sensing and Genomic Signal Processing group brings together faculty members from a number of different disciplines to focus on the acquisition and analysis of biomedical images and signals, genomic signal processing, and nano/micro systems for bio/medical applications. A set of core courses provides the student with a background in both medical imaging instrumentation, image processing and analysis, genomic signal processing, and biosensing, and elective courses are available in all areas. Laboratories have been established in magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound imaging, genomic signal processing, and integrated micro/nano/bio systems.

Computer Engineering and Systems

Computer Engineering offers research opportunities in the areas of Computer Communications and Networks, multimedia, storage systems, parallel and distributed computing and architecture, fault-tolerant computing and design for testing, computer aided design and testing tools, VLSI design and technologies, high-speed networks and architecture, intelligent systems and controls, and real-time systems and their architecture.

Device Science and Nanotechnology (formerly solid state)

The Device Science and Nanotechnology program in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Texas A&M University encompasses a wide range of research topics from electrooptics to quantum computing. The electrooptics program encompasses a range of technologies that make use of optical and electronic phenomena. Research areas of primary interest include fiber optics, integrated optics and semiconductor lasers.

Electromagnetics and Microwaves

Research activities in electromagnetics and microwaves span a broad spectrum of applications. In particular the theoretical and experimental aspects of antennas, electromagnetic theory, electromagnetic wave scattering, active and passive microwave and millimeter wave circuits, linear and non-linear optical or microwave guiding systems, and microstrip antennas.

Electric Power Systems and Power Electronics

Two major efforts constitute the program: Power Systems Power Electronics. Faculty expertise from both power systems and power electronics is frequently combined in research activities. Power systems research is performed in the areas of analysis, reliability, monitoring, control and protection of power systems. Some of the faculty also have a strong interest in control systems, digital signal processing, data communications, and intelligent system applications. Power electronics research is performed in the areas of motor drives, power electronic converters, utility interface issues, active filters, and electric and hybrid vehicle. Some of the faculty also have strong interest in power quality and diagnostics of electrical machines.

Information Science and Systems (formerly telecommunications)

Research activities in the Information Science and Systems program are focused on advancing the state of the art in areas including information theory, coding theory, data compression, detection and estimation, receiver signal processing, networking coding and network information theory, multimedia security, secrecy systems, optimization techniques, robust control, adaptive control and control of multi-agent systems. Current research projects include both fundamental research in the above areas as well as applied research. Typical applications are in communication networks, wireless networks, sensor networks, data storage systems, aircraft control, intelligent vehicular systems and robotics.
