Thermodynamics could be the future of computing, researchers say
As Moore’s Law reaches its limits, thermodynamic computing might prove to be the future of the field, says a new report from an international team of 38 researchers led by UC San Diego professor of practice Todd Hylton, released this month. Full Story

UC San Diego Alumni Power San Diego Robotics Ecosystem
From companies worth billions of dollars to startups employing a small number of people, UC San Diego engineering alumni are at the core of the robotics ecosystem here in San Diego County.This was clearly evident at the sixth annual robotics forum organized by the UC San Diego Contextual Robotics Institute Nov. 7. The forum focused exclusively on local companies this year and was dubbed the San Diego Robotics Forum for the occasion. The goal was to showcase the breadth and depth of the region’s robotics strengths, and solidify San Diego’s reputation as Robot Beach. Full Story
The Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) department traces its roots back to the establishment of the Applied Electrophysics department in 1965, under its founding chair Henry Booker. Through a succession of department realignments emerged today’s ECE in 1987, when the then-combined Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department was split into two departments. Since then, ECE has earned a world-class reputation for producing top-notch engineers for industry and academia.
Assistant professor Piya Pal, an expert in signal processing, has received a 2019 Young Investigator
Congratulations to Samuel Sunarjo on his Award of Excellence!
The Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department at the Jacobs School of Engineering traces its history back to 1965, with the creation of the department of Applied Electrophysics, which became Applied Physics & Information Science, then Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, and finally ECE as we know it today. Throughout those formative years, our vision focused on information and communication theory and systems, radio physics, and quantum electronics.
ECE is among the leading departments of its kind in the nation, built on fundamentals of applied mathematics and engineering physics, providing multidisciplinary, systems-oriented education and research in eleven core areas: Applied Ocean Sciences, Computer Engineering, Communication Theory & Systems, Electronic Circuits & Systems, Electronic Devices & Materials, Intelligent Systems, Robotics & Control, Medical Devices & Systems, Nanoscale Devices & Systems, Photonics, Radio and Space Science, and Signal & Image Processing.
