The College of Engineering at Boston University is a community of students, faculty, and staff focused on advancing science and technology through research and discovery, and preparing students to be technology leaders in the 21st century. Undergraduate students participate in a comprehensive core curriculum that sets the foundation for their engineering studies while delivering a breadth of education across the humanities, mathematics, and social and natural sciences. Through an array of majors and concentrations, they can study aerospace, biomedical, computer, electrical, manufacturing or mechanical engineering, as well as nanotechnology, and energy technologies and environmental engineering. They also have the opportunity work side-by-side with research faculty in a number of modern, high-tech facilities. Graduate students partake in myriad programs and research opportunities leading to doctoral or master’s degrees in biomedical, computer, computer systems, electrical, manufacturing, mechanical, global manufacturing, photonics, systems, or materials science and engineering.

    Corrosion of metal in biomedical devices could cause serious health problems to patients. Currently ceramics coating materials used in metal implants can reduce corrosion to some extent with limitations. Here we proposed ...
  • Far-field imaging of non-fluorescent species with sub-diffraction resolution 

    Wang, Pu; Slipchenko, Mikhail N.; Mitchell, James; Yang, Chen; Potma, Eric O.; Xu, Xianfan; Cheng, Ji-Xin (2013)
    Super-resolution optical microscopy is opening a new window to unveil the unseen details on the nanoscopic scale. Current far-field super-resolution techniques rely on fluorescence as the read-out1-5. Here, we demonstrate ...
  • Edge-TM: Exploiting transactional memory for error tolerance and energy efficiency 

    Moreshet, Tali; Papagiannopoulou, Dimitra; Marongiu, Andrea; Herlihy, Maurice; Bahar, R. Iris (2017-10-01)
    Scaling of semiconductor devices has enabled higher levels of integration and performance improvements at the price of making devices more susceptible to the effects of static and dynamic variability. Adding safety margins ...
  • Evaluating critical bits in arithmetic operations due to timing violations 

    Moreshet, Tali; Whang, Sungseob; Rachford, Tymani; Papagiannopoulou, Dimitra; Bahar, R. Iris (2017-09-01)
    Various error models are being used in simulation of voltage-scaled arithmetic units to examine application-level tolerance of timing violations. The selection of an error model needs further consideration, as differences ...
  • Hybrid approximate message passing 

    Rangan, Sundeep; Fletcher, Alyson K.; Goyal, Vivek K.; Byrne, Evan; Schniter, Philip (IEEE-INST ELECTRICAL ELECTRONICS ENGINEERS INC, 2017-09-01)
    Gaussian and quadratic approximations of message passing algorithms on graphs have attracted considerable recent attention due to their computational simplicity, analytic tractability, and wide applicability in optimization ...
  • Scalar quantization with random thresholds 

    Goyal, Vivek K (2011-09)
    The distortion-rate performance of certain randomly-designed scalar quantizers is determined. The central results are the mean-squared error distortion and output entropy for quantizing a uniform random variable with ...
  • A few photons among many: unmixing signal and noise for photon-efficient active imaging 

    Rapp, Joshua; Goyal, Vivek K. (2017-09)
    Conventional LIDAR systems require hundreds or thousands of photon detections per pixel to form accurate depth and reflectivity images. Recent photon-efficient computational imaging methods are remarkably effective with ...
  • How proteins bind macrocycles 

    Villar, Elizabeth A.; Beglov, Dmitri; Chennamadhavuni, Spandan; Porco, John A.; Kozakov, Dima; Vajda, Sandor; Whitty, Adrian (2014-09)
    The potential utility of synthetic macrocycles (MCs) as drugs, particularly against low-druggability targets such as protein-protein interactions, has been widely discussed. There is little information, however, to guide ...
