Wireless @ Virginia Tech is now a research center within ICTAS.
Welcome to the home of Wireless @ Virginia Tech, an exciting university-wide focus on wireless technology. Wireless @ VT is bringing together researchers, facilities, equipment, and expertise from across Virginia Tech to focus on multi-disciplinary solutions to "Invent the Future" of wireless.
Who We Are
One of the largest university wireless research groups in the United States, Wireless @ Virginia Tech encompasses several centers and groups, including the world renowned Mobile and Portable Radio Research Group (MPRG), Center for Wireless Telecommunications (CWT), and Virginia Tech Antenna Group (VTAG). The research group brings more than 25 faculty members whose technical expertise ranges from communications to networks, and more than 100 graduate students focused on wireless. While expertise lies deep within electrical engineering, such as antenna design, wireless networking, communication systems, micro-electronics, RF electronics, and system integration, disciplines outside of electrical engineering such as computer science, mathematics, economics, and business also make up the Wireless @ Virginia Tech team.
What We Do
The mission of Wireless @ Virginia Tech is to develop a research environment that produces high caliber students as future leaders in academia, industry, and government. Wireless @ Virginia Tech brings together researchers, facilities, equipment, and expertise from many disciplines throughout the university to create a comprehensive solution for wireless challenges. We also provide high caliber educational experience for graduate and undergraduate engineering students pursuing careers in wireless communications.
