Overview of Research in ECE at UCF

We have talented students, dedicated faculty, state-of-the-art facilities, and quality educational programs. Through delivering research-based education to our students and facilitating technology transfers, ECE faculty continue their research endeavors that generate new knowledge and support technology advances as well as economic growth.

ECE is home to the FEEDER Center, one of national-network centers funded by the US Department of Energy under the GEARED program. Also affiliated with ECE is the MIST Center, an NSF I/UCRC program. ECE research is categorized into the following four focus groups, each of which consists of several areas:

  • Computer Systems and VLSI
    • Data-intensive High Performance Computing, Massive Storage and File System, I/O Architecture
      Computer Architecture and Evolvable Hardware
      Secure, Trusted, and Reliable Processor and ASIC Design; Cyber Security and Cryptography
  • Cyber-Physical Systems (Communication, Controls, Signal Processing, and Energy Systems)
    • Networked Systems, Cooperative Control, Optimization and Games
      Autonomous Robotic Vehicles, Medical and Assistive Robotics
      Smart Grids, Distributed Generation and Optimization, Protection and Control
      Biomedical Devices and Control
      Digital Signal Processing, Detection and Estimation
      Communication Theory, Cognitive Radios and Networks, Wireless Communication and Sensor Networks
