Electromagnetics Research — the Career of the 21st Century
Over the past twenty years, a revolution has occurred in eleclronics, resulting in the
proliferation of telephones, facsimile machines, networked computers, automatic teller
machines, and cable television services. The next twenty years will see a similar
revolution in elecU-omagnetics leading to "networks without connections". New
developments in electromagnetic maienals and systems will find applications in intelligent
vehicles and highways, telemedicine, portable personal communication and entertamment.
as well as networks with very high bandwiddis.
Other developing areas in electfomagnetics include the use of electromagnetic

If you are an undergraduate electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, physics,
or mathematics major, you have a chance to be ahead of your time. A career in
electromagnetics will put you in a position to be on the leading edge of the profession.
Center for Electromagnetics Research at Northeastern University
The Center for ElecU-omagnetics Research (CER) provides an opportunity for qualified
graduate students to perform research with faculty who are recognized leaders m these
Academic studies in the departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
Physics, Mechanical or Industrial Engineering, is complemented by research work closely
related to the course work and to the research interests of the Center's sponsors. The
diversity of these sponsors, includbg contractors working for these agencies, ensures a
nch and varied field of research. With more than 20 universities, the concenU'ation of
faculty, graduate and undergraduate students, and the Boston locaUon at the hub of Route
128, "America's Technology ILghway", working in elecU-omagnetics at the CER provides
a vibrant and exciting academic community in which to work and study.
Advantages of University-Industry Collaboration
The Center for Electromagnetics Research has a linuted number of p>ositions available for
qualified graduate students under the Technology ReinvesUnent Program. The students
will receive stipends and tuition waivers to complete the MS program in Engineering at
Northeastem University, and summer salary from M/A-COM to apply their research to
intelligent highways, communication systems, and other areas.
The major research of the Center is in
the followmg four general areas;
Radar Signal Processmg
Plasmas and Materials
Computational Analysis for EM
Underground Remote Sensing
Courses m support of these areas
Plasma Theory and Engineering
Solid State Devices
Radar and Communication
Antetma Theory and Design
