CU-Boulder graduate engineering programs are ranked 19th among public graduate engineering programs nationwide according to Best Graduate Schools 2005. A substantial number of graduates of this department have gone on to work in upper levels of high-tech companies; many have started their own companies or have pursued highly successful consulting careers.
Two of our current and emeritus faculty are members of the highly select National Academy of Engineering. One of them, Professor Frank Barnes, is a recipient of the prestigious Bernard Gordon Prize, awarded b y the National Academy. In addition, 11 of our faculty are Fellows of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and three are Fellows of the Optical Society of America. IEEE is the world's largest technical society, with over 360,000 members in 150 countries. Professor and current chair of the department, Michael Lightner, is a past president of that organization.
Our research is concentrated in ten different areas, from biomedical engineering to VLSI/CAD. Three research centers, the Colorado Center for Information Storage, the Colorado Power Electronics Center, and the Optoelectronics Computing Center, pursue interdisciplinary and industrially sponsored research.
