Prospective Students

I am always looking for self-motivated students to work with me on research projects in wireless networking, network security, artificial intelligence, and Internet of things.

  • Graduate Assistantship for Ph.D. students (based on availability)
  • Research Experience for Master students (if you want to do a master's thesis with me, you are encouraged to chat with me at least two semesters before your anticipated graduation)

To qualify for a Ph.D. application, prospective students must meet the following requirements:

  • Has a strong motivation to spend the next 3-5 years for a Ph.D. degree by conducting cutting-edge research.
  • Has a Master’s degree (with a GPA 3.2) in one of the following areas: Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science or equivalent. Full assistantship (based on availability) will be considered for excellent candidates.
  • Prospective students with a B.S. degree in related areas are also welcome to apply (for graduate school first). Assistantship will also be considered for those excellent candidates who commit to pursue a Ph.D. after getting a Master’s degree. (Note: A master’s thesis is required for a graduate student who is funded with assistantship.)
  • GRE score is highly recommended.
  • Has a TOEFL score over 80 at the time of official enrollment. (For international applicants.)

Prospective students will fit in the program better if they meet some (not necessary all) of the requirements as follows:

  • Willing to work in a multi-cultural environment
  • With research experience, e.g., has research publications that are not the thesis
  • With background in computer networks, wireless communications, data analytics
  • With background in some advanced mathematic knowledge and tools, e.g., optimization, game theory, graph theory, etc.
  • With good programming skill (e.g., C, Python, Matlab, etc.)
  • With good communication skill (e.g., presentation, group discussion, etc.)
  • Willing to conduct self-guided hands-on projects

Prospective students please send me your CV, transcripts, GRE score, TOEFL(if international applicants) and one of your recent publications if available.
