graduate courses are applied toward advanced-degree programs, subject
to the program's requirements. Participating faculty are drawn from
members of the graduate faculty in electrical engineering.
WINLAB is an industry/university collaborative venture aimed at
furthering the interests of the wireless networking community. Its
activities include research, technology evaluation, and education. The
Rutgers Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers
education in wireless networking at the bachelor's, master's, and Ph.D.
