The EE Department offers a variety of different undergraduate research opportunities. Performing research allows you to interact with faculty on a new level and learn about areas of EE not found in the classroom. If you are enrolled in the Honors College, you have to write a thesis based on a project or research to be able to graduate with honors. Don’t be afraid to meet with professors to discuss the research opportunities that they offer! Below are just some of the professors you can conduct research with.


Professor: Dr. Roy McCann

Type of Research:

Circuit analysis and
development of algorithms for real-time
implementation using FPGAs and DSPs to
control power electronic circuits in threephase


Students will need to have
taken the following courses: MATH 2584, MATH
3083, ELEG 2114, ELEG 2904, CSCE 2004


Professor: Dr. Juan Balda

dr-juan-baldaType of Research:

Power electronics and its
multiple applications to electric power
systems. Undergraduate students will work
with a graduate student in a
current research topic of the Sustainable
Smart Electric Energy Systems (SSEES)


Students need to have a GPA
of 3.0 or higher


Professor: Dr. Omar Manasreh

Type of Research:

Experimental and
theoretical optoelectronic properties of III–V
semiconductors, nanomaterials, and related


Students merely need to be
willing and have the desire to perform


Professor: Dr. Alan Mantooth

Type of Research:

The MSCAD group is looking
for top undergraduate students with an
interest in integrated circuit (IC) design and
computer-aided design (CAD). Students will
have the opportunity to be a part of several
areas in the IC/CAD process. These areas
include: PCB design, probe station training,
high precision measurement techniques,
packaging training, benchtop testing, and
extreme environment testing.


It is beneficial for students to have successfully
completed Circuits I, II for basic lab experience and Electronics I, II
for design experience, but any student willing to learn will find work
in the circuit design or CAD group rewarding


Professor: Dr. Zhong Chen

dr zhong chen

Type of Research:

Novel devices, circuits and module for extreme environment applications. 

Students will have opportunity to work on the topics such as wide band-gap

devices' characterizations, simulations and reliability assessments. 


Students need to have taken Electronics I, II.
