We conduct cutting-edge, world-class research on real-world problems in the following areas: 

  • Model-Integrated Computing
  • Distributed Real-Time and Embedded Systems
  • Wireless Sensor Networks
  • Model-Based Design of Cyber Physical Systems
  • Systems Security and Privacy

2020 Program

For this 2020 class we welcomed 32 students from across the globe to remotely work with our research groups. Most students were given a start and end date of June 1st - August 7th, 2020 following a full 10-week format. Students participated in a variety of events including: PI Lecture Seminars, Lunch & Learns with Graduate students, Wednesday Night activities, Book Club, Bulletin Board hour and more.
