Welcome to ECEE
Welcome to the Department of Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering at the University of Colorado at Boulder. We are excited to announce our name change, which reflects our new research and teaching directions in the engineering of renewable and sustainable energy systems. This name represents our dedication and response to the world's changing energy needs. ECEE faculty and students are turning ideas into reality. We encourage you to investigate the ECEE energy curriculum, our research in renewable energy including wind, solar, and energy storage, and the Colorado Power Electronics Center.

- Congratulations to Profs. Francois Meyer and Peter Mathys who were recognized by ECEE's Jelena Notaros and the One Professor Project. To watch the video, click here.
- AT&T and Intel will be hosting a hackathon at the CU Boulder Engineering Center from Nov 1 - 2. It's the third in a series of four regional hackathons that lead up to a final national accelerator. Developer groups, schools, startups, and individuals are welcome to participate and compete for cash prizes, as well as a trip to CES (Las Vegas) in January to vie for the $20,000 grand prize. You can find more information about the event at htpp://iothackathon.co, and register for free at http://iothackboulder-sr.eventbrite.com.
- Congratulations to Prof. Eric Keller on his two successful NSF proposals! Prof. Richard Han (PI) and Prof. Keller (co-PI) were awarded $750K for "Elasticizing the Linux Operating System for the Cloud". Prof. Keller was also awarded $500K for "Liquid Networking".
- Congratulations to Prof. Rafael Piestun for a $360K NSF grant for "A new paradigm in optical design: infinitely linear refraction artificial materials"!
- A CU team led by Prof. Milos Popovic has achieved back-to-back breakthroughs in on-chip optical interconnects, enabling optical modulators for the first time in both silicon-on-insulator and bulk silicon native, advanced CMOS microelectronics processes. The research is a significant step towards enabling full photonic communication links between CPU and memory chips that may overcome the energy bottleneck of current microelectronics, and enable the continued Moore's Law scaling of computational power on chip. Led by postdoc Jeffrey Shainline and graduate students Mark Wade and Kareem Nammari, the results of the collaboration with MIT and Micron Technology are detailed in two research papers in the August 1st issue of the journal Optics Letters.
