Special Report
Interdisciplinary Activities and Programs

 April 1998



mesh diagramThe 1998 annual report logo and image at left show an analysis of a combustion chamber using large-scale unstructured mesh algorithms developed by Professor Mark Jones, a specialist in high-performance computing. Jones and his colleagues continue to refine the concepts and have applied them to plasticity issues and superconductivity.

In order to develop the algorithms and software to solve the application problems, the team must delve into some of the issues and challenges of other fields. This is just one example of how electrical and computer engineers work with people from other disciplines either to integrate their product, develop it or to make sure it will meet the needs of the marketplace.

This report explores the interdisciplinary side of electrical and computer engineering at Virginia Tech - how the faculty is educating engineers at all levels to work in a multidisciplinary environment, and how we are teaming with researchers of other disciplines in order to advance the developments and applications of the field.
