Research at Missouri S&T as a GAANN Fellow
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is looking to award GAANN fellowships to assist graduate students with excellent records who demonstrate financial need and demonstrate a desire to pursue academic research.
A Doctoral Program on Data-Enabled Assurance of Electromagnetic Compatibility
GAANN Fellows will be engaged in multidisciplinary research and education activities centered on data-enabled approaches to increasing, evaluating, and predicting the immunity and compatibility of a broad range of systems. A lack of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) can result in catastrophic failure or malfunction of a system and can increase vulnerability to malicious attacks. Advancements in science and application of EMC principles can lead to significant improvements in reliability, survivability, availability, and security of systems that range from an electronic device intended for consumer use, to a cyber-physical critical infrastructure relied upon by thousands for daily needs.
The research carried out by GAANN Fellows will enable design, manufacturing, and verification of dependable and resilient systems, and is critical to maintaining the prominence and competitiveness of the United States in advanced technology.
