  • Repeating EventMeet USC: Admission Presentation, Campus Tour, and Engineering Talk

    Fri, Sep 28, 2018

    Viterbi School of Engineering Undergraduate Admission

    University Calendar

    This half day program is designed for prospective freshmen (HS seniors and younger) and family members. Meet USC includes an information session on the University and the Admission process, a student led walking tour of campus, and a meeting with us in the Viterbi School. During the engineering session we will discuss the curriculum, research opportunities, hands-on projects, entrepreneurial support programs, and other aspects of the engineering school. Meet USC is designed to answer all of your questions about USC, the application process, and financial aid.

    Reservations are required for Meet USC. This program occurs twice, once at 8:30 a.m. and again at 12:30 p.m.

    Please make sure to check availability and register online for the session you wish to attend. Also, remember to list an Engineering major as your "intended major" on the webform!

  • Munushian Seminar - Ali Hajimiri, Friday, September 28th at 2pm in EEB 132

    Fri, Sep 28, 2018 @ 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Ali Hajimiri, California Institute of Technology

    Talk Title: Title: 1, 2, 3, infinity: The Power of Groups

    Abstract: Many of today's technological marvels have emerged from putting apparently unrelated ideas together and creating something more than the sum of the parts. There is a tremendous still-to-be-realized potential in a large number of units operating as a collective, be it in a human society or on a silicon chip. Silicon integrated chips have come a long way from the days of first transistors. Nowadays, we can design using practically unlimited number of components, which leads to a plethora of new opportunities of applications and system, previously unimaginable. In this talk, we will discuss a holistic design approach to electronic and photonic integrated circuits leading to further proliferation of such technologies into our daily lives. We will discuss some of its exciting results, including low-cost tera-hertz imagers, optical gyroscopes, nanophotonic coherent cameras capable of forming 3D images, optical phased arrays, and space-based solar power transfer to name a few.

    Biography: Professor Hajimiri's group does research on electronics and photonics integrated circuits and their applications in various disciplines, including high-frequency and high-speed communications, sensing, imaging, and bio-sensing. His research group engages in both the theoretical analysis
    of the problems in integrated circuits as well as practical implementations of new systems.
    Prof. Ali Hajimiri received his B.S. degree in Electronics Engineering from the Sharif University of Technology, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the Stanford University.
    Before joining the Faculty of Caltech, he worked at Philips Semiconductors, where he worked on a BiCMOS chipset for GSM and cellular units, at Sun Microsystems working on the UltraSPARC microprocessor's cache RAM design methodology, and with Lucent Technologies (Bell Labs), Murray Hill, NJ, where he investigated low-phase-noise integrated oscillators.
    In 1998, he joined the Faculty of the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, where he is Bren Professor of Electrical Engineering and Medical Engineering, Director of Caltech Holistic Integrated Circuit Laboratory, and co-Director of the Space-based Solar Power Project. His research interests are high-speed and high-frequency electronics and photonics integrated circuits for applications in sensors, biomedical devices, photonics, and communication systems.
