One of the research specialties of the UToledo Department of EECS is computational sciences.  

Domain specialists in computer science and engineering sometimes don’t have the advanced computer science knowledge and skills to solve challenging problems. UToledo researchers collaborate with domain specialist scientists and engineers to fill this void and address problems, working in areas such as: 

  • Virtual reality 
  • Visualization 
  • Biomedical informatics 
  • Renewable energy sources 
  • Photovoltaic materials 

The EECS department faculty members work in five research focus groups. Computer science engineering students can participate in two of them: 

Our highly qualified faculty members have published research in high-quality journals. Many faculty members have research grants awarded by federal agencies, including the NSF. Faculty research interests include: 

  • Cybersecurity 
  • Social networks 
  • Artificial intelligence 
  • High-performance computing 

Dr. Vijay Devabhaktuni is a part-time faculty member in the EECS department. He is a renowned expert in computer-aided design, machine learning, modeling, big data, biomedical engineering, cyber security, energy efficiency, virtual reality and more. He has received about $2 million in funding from more than 30 external grants and has published more than 80 papers.
