Englund, an assistant professor of electrical engineering with a joint appointment in the Department of Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics, works in quantum photonics, the transmission and processing of data in the form of photons, the smallest particles of light. This line of research has potential real-world applications for any agency or company dealing with confidential information, including banks, hospitals and the government.

Res. Inc. students work and live together.

Someday, Columbia’s engineering graduates may fondly recall launching their successful startup company while huddled around a whiteboard in their dormitory suite.

Anyone who uses multithreaded computer programs—and that’s all of us, as these are the programs that power nearly all software applications including Office, Windows, Mac

Despite the limited laboratory space available in Manhattan’s dense urban environment, Columbia’s basic and applied scientists and engineers have long been at the forefr
