News Articles

    • New chip being created to detect cancer
      The Nanotechnology Research and Education Center and three university departments are working together to develop a chip that could detect cancerous genes.

      The Electrical Engineering, Bioengineering and Biology Departments are collaborating with the center to create a silicon chip, which is an inexpensive, efficient and sensitive detector that will analyze the existence of severe and sometimes terminal types of sicknesses, said Shawon Mohammud Noor, electrical engineering graduate research assistant.

      The leader of the project is a recent addition to the department, Samir Iqbal, electrical engineering assistant professor. He joined the university in 2007 from Purdue University in West Lafayette, Ind...... (Read more on the link)

Research and Expertise

  • Research
    Novel Structures for the Biologically Important Detection Solid State fabrication technology has matured over decades and is now identified as a key component for realizing novel nano-structures. We focus on developing devices and systems for the detection of biologically important molecules. Such sensors interface the top-down nano-fabrication capabilities with bottom-up molecular recognition and selectivity. The nanoscale biosensors benefit from the functionalized surfaces exhibiting extremely specific and ultra-sensitive detection properties. Biologically Mediated Fabrication As the need of scaling viable sensors increases, natural bio-molecular recognition can play important role in enabling precise alignment and control of functional devices. The special chemical properties of such molecules are explored for fabrication at the atomic scales.

Courses

      • EE 1201-001 Introduction to Electrical Engineering

        After an introduction to different branches of Engineering, we focus on Electrical Engineering to illustrate concepts, methods, problem solving approaches, and tools common to all Engineering, and those unique to Electrical Engineering. Various areas within Electrical Engineering will be introduced, with examples from analog and digital electronic circuits, control and robotics, microwave and optical engineering, telecommunication, energy systems, and biosensors. Students will be introduced to skills they need to succeed in subsequent Engineering courses.  The students will learn about laws and rules related to academic integrity and professional ethical responsibilities. The emphasis is to engage students in active learning through exercises, mini-projects, and team activities. Selected speakers from across the College of Engineering will make presentations and emphasize the interdisciplinary nature of Engineering.
