Interview: NYU Wireless Director Theodore Rappaport Addresses Millimeter Waves And Engineering Education

As the volume of wireless communications grows, two challenges are emerging. First, how will we manage all of this traffic? Second, where will we find the engineers who will solve these next-generation problems? Professor Theodore (Ted) S. Rappaport, an experienced researcher in wireless communications and microwave and millimeter-wave applications, wrestles with these issues every day.

Dr. Rappaport is the David Lee/Ernst Weber Professor of Electrical Engineering at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University (NYU-Poly) as well as a professor of computer science at New York University. He also is the founding director of NYU Wireless, the world’s first academic research center to combine engineering, computer science, and medicine.
