Graduates from UB's BSEE program will achieve the following professional goals:
These objectives are assessed and altered using the following process:
On a three-year cycle, a sample of current students, faculty, alumni, and advisory board members are surveyed and asked to rank, rate, and make alterations to the list of current program objectives. Survey data and comments are reviewed by the faculty and incorporated into a new set of objectives.
These were last examined and approved in the EE faculty retreat on August 24, 2007.
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. >>
