Two optional programs are offered through the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences to assist engineering students in gaining real world experience. The Engineering Career Institute provides job search assistance and enhances your co-op student job performance by
providing classes in leadership, communication, teamwork, total quality management, and other pertinent subjects while the in co-op program.
The Engineering Co-op Program enables students to gain exposure to a real employment situation, applying technical and business skills in an industrial environment.

A false color image obtained by an EE lab with a streak camera showing the ultra-fast (picosecond) time-resolved photoluminescence of an InGaN/GaN multiple-quantum well. The camera obtains images with a time resolution of 20 ps.>>
IIn a collaboration between an EE group and several other departments, an EE graduate student has demonstrated the ability to trap 2.5um diameter polysterene microspheres in a matrix using a single scanning laser beam.>>
EE faculty are developing nanostructured solar cells that exploit Multiple Exciton Generation (MEG) in nanocrystal quantum dots. The image shows the device structure schematic on the left and the actual micrograph of the fabricated structure. >>
NIH has funded EE faculty researchers to develop novel colorimetric sensors based on a novel holographic interferometry method for producing 1-D, 2-D and 3-D photonic bandgap structures. These structures are being studied for applications in wound healing. >>
