We have already broken new
grounds in these areas, and these projects will address new directions
as well as major enhancements of our previous work.
Industry demand for Ph.D.s in these areas is very high.
The major requirement for the prospective RA is an enthusiasm and
motivation for doing research. The desirable course background for the
student includes logic design, VLSI design, computer architecture,
elementary probability theory, and data structures and algorithms. The
student should also be well versed in programming in C and C++.
Students with either EE, CE or CS backgrounds are appropriate for this
project. Students who want to pursue a Ph.D. (preferred) or a Master's
thesis are encouraged to apply.
If interested, apply with a resume in simple text form by
e-mail or put a copy in my mailbox at the ECE Dept. Main Office (1020

your complete academic background including the specific institution
from where undergraduate degree was obtained, overall grades/marks,
grades/marks in relevant courses, class rank, GRE and TOEFL scores,
