We bring together a spectrum of degree programs and research thrusts that ultimately lead to the enhancement of life. We strive for distinction through excellence, productivity, and innovation. We emphasize a student-centric, experiential learning environment that prepares capable professionals, effective teammates, and life-long learners.
Early in life, Stephanie Hippo's parents gave her sound advice: "You can complain about something, but until you do something about it, you're just part of the problem." Two years ago, Hippo encountered a problem - the lack of women in computer science - and decided to do something about it.
Philip Feng, assistant professor of electrical engineering and computer science, has won a $500,000 National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development Award for his five-year project, “Dynamically Tuning 2D Semiconducting Crystals and Heterostructures for Atomically-Thin Signal Processing Devices and Systems.”
Called a CAREER award, it’s the NSF’s most prestigious grant to junior faculty members. Winners are chosen because they exemplify the role of researcher-teacher-scholar through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of the two.

EECS researchers discern the shapes of high-order Brownian motions
For the first time, scientists have vividly mapped the shapes and textures of high-order modes of Brownian motions—in this case, the collective macroscopic movement of molecules in microdisk resonators—researchers at Case Western Reserve University report. In his lab Philip Feng worked closely with research associate Max Zenghui Wang and Ph.D. student Jaesung Lee on the study. They used a record-setting scanning optical interferometry technique, described in a study published today in the journal Nature Communications.
The cybersecurity education effort at Case led by Prof. Swarup Bhunia (in collaboration with Cleveland State University) was featured on NPR's Marketplace.
