Advice to Potential Grad Students, Undergrad Researchers, and Post Docs
For details on graduate programs in the EE department, please go to the EE homepage. Note that there are many collaborative research projects that span the EE and other departments, e.g. the NSF Center for Embedded Network Systems (CENS). Students are encouraged to look in the research section of the EE home page to see the scope of activities being pursued; communications research in the department spans devices through to internet applications.
Fellowships, TA opportunities, and research assistanceships are available for graduate studies, awarded on a competitive basis among all applicants in the REGULAR admissions period. Thus, it is important to meet the departmental deadlines. PLEASE NOTE that ALL decisions on admission, financial aid, etc. will be made based upon the entire pool of applicants through the regular admissions process. Materials sent directly to me will therefore only contribute to deforestation or clogging of the departmental mail server, as they cannot be considered. Many communications students complete their M.S. within the first nine months. RA's and TA's are typically readily available to Ph.D. students, which is to say, after most of the course work is complete.
As the purpose of my research program is to train grad students, and to encourage some undergraduates to continue on to grad school, no funds have been sought to support post docs. Therefore only post-docs with fellowships that can be expected to cover all but incidental expenses can be considered. I do however regularly have some funds to support undergraduate researchers, usually selected from either my design course or the pool of applicants to the CENS summer program.
