NMSU's Research Areas
NMSU professors of Computer Science Enrico Pontelli and Son Cao Tran (seated) explain their researching techniques to students. They recently received a $340,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to study artificial intelligence specifically related to research on the planning and development of intelligent software agents.
NMSU Research Areas:

NMSU faculty and researchers in this area are involved in a broad range of research in power, optical, communication, and control systems; computer networks; software engineering; and artificial intelligence. In 2011, NMSU had more than $11 million in funding from more than 25 sponsors.

Faculty research efforts focus on

  • Photonics and Electromagnetics: Photonic microcavities, surface plasmon polaritons, photonic sensors, optoelectronics, phased array antennas, electromagnetic source imaging
  • Signals and Systems: Digital, FR, and optical communication; signal and image processing, pattern classification, error correcting codes, network coding and theory
  • Power and Control: Power system protection, digital relaying, energy distribution systems, power system modeling and control, renewable energy and microgrids
  • Computer Engineering: Satellite design; system engineering; microarchitecture; wireless, sensor, and optical networks; performance modeling and analysis; computer performance
  • Databases and Data Mining: Patterns, association rules, and clusters
  • Networks: Sensor networks, wireless networks, and social networks
  • Assistive technologies: Reasoning about actions and changes, planning, scheduling, autonomous agents, web agents, control theory, knowledge representation and reasoning, and logic programming
