Centers and Labs
Center for Advanced Technology in Telecommunications (CATT)
CATT promotes industry-university collaborative research and development in these areas: wireless and personal communications networks and devices, secure information technologies, and media and network applications/services.
Control and Network (CAN) Lab
The CAN Lab develops fundamental principles and tools for the stability analysis and control of nonlinear dynamical networks, with applications to information, mechanical, and biological systems.
Control/Robotics Research Laboratory (CRRL)
CCRL conducts research projects on unmanned vehicles, autonomy and navigation, control systems, cyber-security, and machine learning.
High Speed Networking Lab
Our research is concentrated on developing complete solutions for data center networks, software-defined networks, high-speed switching and routing, network security and traffic measurement problems.
Integrated Information Systems Laboratory
The Integrated Information Systems Laboratory performs research in the areas of wireless communications, information theory and communication theory. Projects conducted with affiliated faculty and students include Cooperative Communications, Joint Source and Channel Coding for Wireless Networks, Information Theoretic Security, Power Efficient Multimedia Communications, and Single Carrier FDMA.
Laboratory for Nano-Engineered Hybrid Integrated Systems
Our lab is investigating the application of nano-engineered hybrid integrated systems in the emerging frontiers of sensing and life sciences. We design and implement those systems by combining the benefits of emerging nanotechnologies with conventional electronics (e.g. silicon CMOS chips). We use nanofabrication techniques to engineer nanodevices and study the fundamental properties of low-dimensional electronic materials.
Medical Robotics and Interactive Intelligent Technologies (MERIIT)
Led by S. Farokh Atashzar, the MERIIT Lab develops and implements artificial intelligence algorithms, smart wearable hardware, advanced control systems, and signal processing modules systems to augment human capabilities using multimodal robotic technologies. A particular focus of the lab is on interactive Neuro-Rehabilitation Robotic and Surgical Robotic systems. Activities range from smart hardware modules to intelligent software systems.
NYU Center for Cybersecurity (CCS)
CCS is an interdisciplinary research institute dedicated to training the next generation of cybersecurity professionals and to shaping the public discourse and policy landscape on issues of technology and security. The Center is a collaboration among NYU Tandon School of Engineering and other NYU schools and departments. The Center has physical locations in New York City and NYU Abu Dhabi, as well as a network of scholars and practitioners around the world.
NYU NanoFab Cleanroom
Home to world-class micro- and nanofabrication and metrology tools, which meet or exceed the demands of academic and industry users alike. With over ~ 2000 sq. ft. of Class 1000 space, the NanoFab is appropriately equipped to meet the present and future demands for device fabrication.
NYU WIRELESS is a vibrant academic research center that is pushing the boundaries of wireless communications, sensing and networking. Centered at NYU Tandon and involving industry leaders, faculty and students throughout the entire NYU community, NYU WIRELESS offers a world-class research environment that is creating the fundamental theories and techniques for future mass-deployable wireless devices across a wide range of applications and markets. Every January, NYU WIRELESS hosts an annual recruiting day for all of its students and Industrial Affiliate sponsors and hosts a major invitation-only wireless summit every April, in cooperation with Nokia Bell Laboratories.
Unique in New York City, the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers a complete program in electrical power systems. Research areas include: Power Generation, Transmission and Distribution, Electric Machines, Electric Drives, Power Electronics, Electromagnetic Propulsion and Design, Distributed Generation, and Smart Grid.
Research activities in the Video Lab deal with how to encode and distribute video among a large number of users with diverse network access links, computing power, and energy resources. Another focus area is in biomedical image processing and distribution. The lab collaborates extensively with other faculty members and graduate students in wireless communication and networking at the School of Engineering, and with medical schools in the surrounding area.
