As threats to the U.S. power grid surge, WVU professor develops advanced solutions for human-machine coordination

The electrical grid faces a mounting barrage of threats that could trigger a butterfly effect – floods, superstorms, heat waves, cyberattacks, not to mention its own ballooning complexity and size – that the nation is unprepared to handle. With more than $1.3 million in combined funding, Anurag Srivastava and researchers are tackling two convergent studies aiming to transform power grid crisis response.

WVU engineer developing face recognition software to improve counterterrorism, protection of military, infrastructure

Blurry, low-resolution images from security cameras or drones can throw hurdles at the efforts of law enforcement and military. This is where one WVU engineer hopes to paint a clearer picture by developing robust face recognition software algorithms capable of accurately identifying individuals at distances as far as 300 meters, or nearly 1,000 feet.

Statler College strengthens relationships with key stakeholders across the state during first Industry Day

To bolster partnerships with regional leaders in academia and industry, the Lane Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at West Virginia University hosted its first Industry Day on October 21.

Dear friends and colleagues,

As we enter the final days of the fall semester, I hope you have plans that allow you to rest, relax, and recharge. Also, please take a moment and pat yourself on the back for all you have accomplished this year. I am pleased to proudly highlight the list of accomplishments of our students, faculty and alumni during the past couple of months with a strategic focus on solving our society's biggest challenges.

We welcomed four new faculty members this semester— Piotr Wojciechowski, Amr El-Wakeel, Sara Tehranipoor and Nima Karimian. The Department hosted the first-ever Industry Day in October, focused on preparing our students to be industry ready. In November, computer science and computer engineering student Callyn Zeigler was named a WVU 2022 Mountaineers of Distinction. November also witnessed an agreement with Coursera to offer our highly-ranked online master's degree program in software engineering.

Our faculty have driven extraordinary growth in WVU engineering's interdisciplinary research program focusing on health, energy, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity and biometrics. We are proud of all the students, alumni and faculty for supporting our mission to a bright future.
