Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

FY 23 Research Funding Highlights

Oregon State University’s College of Engineering is the nation’s seventh-largest engineering college and a proven leader in research, with impacts that extend statewide, regionally, nationally, and globally. Research conducted here expands knowledge and creates use-inspired solutions in fields such as artificial intelligence, robotics, advanced manufacturing, clean water, materials science, sustainable energy, high-performance computing, resilient infrastructure, and health-related engineering.

Harish Subbaraman

Harish Subbaraman earned the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from The University of Texas at Austin. Until 2016, he worked as a senior research scientist at Omega Optics, Inc (Austin, TX), where he led and managed SBIR/STTR projects in the areas of printed and flexible hybrid electronics and silicon/polymer photonics. In 2016, he joined The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Boise State University (Boise, ID).

Powered by the Sun

Oregon State Engineers are developing a new generation of energy storage and production technologies that could shake up the solar power landscape. One induces algae to produce half its weight in clean-burning biofuels, while another could yield inexpensive, flexible rooftop solar panels. A third might power entire cities, and a fourth will store vast amounts of solar-generated power indefinitely at low cost.
