Dr. Jin Ye, Assistant Professor in Electrical Engineering, and her collaborators: Dr. Cheng Chen, Dr. Ed Cheng, and Dr. Hao Yue from the College of Science and Engineering were awarded a new award ($297,318) from the National Science Foundation (NSF) Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) Program to acquire a highly scalable and configurable, computationally efficient simulation and experimental testing platform. This new system will enable a diverse multi-user community of engineers, computer scientists, and student researchers to develop and evaluate complex systems and/or physical components in an integrated fashion. It will create well-equipped research environments that integrate research and research training, and provide crucial research infrastructure needed to catalyze cross-disciplinary collaborations among faculty members and initiate and/or strengthen their collaborations with prime research institutions and industrial partners.
