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.

    The mechanisms underpinning concussion, traumatic brain injury, and chronic traumatic encephalopathy, and the relationships between these disorders, are poorly understood. We examined post-mortem brains from teenage athletes ...
  • VGAN-based image representation learning for privacy-preserving facial expression recognition 

    Chen, Jiawei; Konrad, Janusz; Ishwar, Prakash (IEEE, 2018-01-01)
    Reliable facial expression recognition plays a critical role in human-machine interactions. However, most of the facial expression analysis methodologies proposed to date pay little or no attention to the protection of a ...
  • A rehabilitation tool for functional balance using altered gravity and virtual reality 

    Oddsson, Lars Ie; Karlsson, Robin; Konrad, Janusz; Ince, Serdar; Williams, Steve R.; Zemkova, Erika (BIOMED CENTRAL LTD, 2007-07-10)
    BACKGROUND There is a need for effective and early functional rehabilitation of patients with gait and balance problems including those with spinal cord injury, neurological diseases and recovering from hip fractures, a ...
  • Behavior subtraction 

    Jodoin, Pierre-Marc; Saligrama, Venkatesh; Konrad, Janusz (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2012-05-15)
    Background subtraction has been a driving engine for many computer vision and video analytics tasks. Although its many variants exist, they all share the underlying assumption that photometric scene properties are either ...
  • Semi-coupled two-stream fusion ConvNets for action recognition at extremely low resolutions 

    Chen, Jiawei; Wu, Jonathan; Konrad, Janusz; Ishwar, Prakash (IEEE, 2017-01-01)
    Deep convolutional neural networks (ConvNets) have been recently shown to attain state-of-the-art performance for action recognition on standard-resolution videos. However, less attention has been paid to recognition ...
  • On the average uncertainty for systems with nonlinear coupling 

    Nelson, Kenric P.; Umarov, Sabir R.; Kon, Mark A. (Elsevier, 2017-02-15)
    The increased uncertainty and complexity of nonlinear systems have motivated investigators to consider generalized approaches to defining an entropy function. New insights are achieved by defining the average uncertainty ...
  • EIT in multimodal imaging for avoiding biopsies of false positive results in mamography 

    Kotiuga, P. Robert (2017)
    EIT, in the context of false positives in mammography is considered where repeated negative results of biopsies can lead patients to avoid future mammograms. Our approach is to consider the conditional probabilities ...
  • Dependence of tensional homeostasis on cell type and on cell-cell interactions 

    Zollinger, Alicia J.; Xu, Han; Figueiredo, Joana; Paredes, Joana; Seruca, Raquel; Stamenovic, Dimitrije; Smith, Michael L. (SPRINGER, 2018-06-01)
    INTRODUCTION The ability to maintain a homeostatic level of cell tension is essential for many physiological processes. Our group has recently reported that multicellularity is required for tensional homeostasis in ...
  • Hardware transactional memory exploration in coherence-free many-core architectures 

    Papagiannopoulou, Dimitra; Marongiu, Andrea; Moreshet, Tali; Benini, Luca; Herlihy, Maurice; Bahar, R Iris (SPRINGER/PLENUM PUBLISHERS, 2018-12-01)
    High-end embedded systems, like their general-purpose counterparts, are turning to many-core cluster-based shared-memory architectures that provide a shared memory abstraction subject to non-uniform memory access costs. ...
  • Carbon fiber on polyimide ultra-microelectrodes 

    Otchy, Timothy; Gillis, Winthrop F.; Lissandrello, Charles A.; Shen, Jun; Pearre, Ben W.; Mertiri, Alket; Deku, Felix; Cogan, Stuart; Holinski, Bradley J.; Chew, Daniel J.; White, Alice E.; Gardner, Timothy (IOP Publishing, 2018-01-08)
    OBJECTIVE: Most preparations for making neural recordings degrade over time and eventually fail due to insertion trauma and reactive tissue response. The magnitudes of these responses are thought to be related to the ...
