Prospective Students:

Virginia Tech provides a great environment for students in Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering. It has strong academic programs in both fields. The Electrical Engineering program ranks 16, and the Computer Engineering program ranks 20 in the nation according USNews 2022. In particular, there are many fascinating topics explored in Wireless@Virginia Tech. You may learn more about my own research interests by looking at my website, or by reading previously published papers.

For upcoming semesters, I am always looking for self-motivated Ph.D. students who are willing to help me identify answers to the challenges faced by future wireless communication systems/networks. In my view, Ph.D. students are equivalent to research partners. I hope I could help my research partners to achieve their career goals with my expertise and experience in wireless communications. Furthermore, I will encourage and help my research partners to obtain internship experience in leading telecommunication companies through my industrial collaborations.

Entrance Requirements for Graduate Studies

Information regarding graduate admission can be found on the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering website, and on the Virginia Tech website. To be admitted to the graduate program in Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering, the applicant must hold a Bachelor degree in engineering, mathematics, or science from a college or university of recognized standing. Consideration is given based on GRE scores, transcripts, letter of recommendations, experience, etc. Graduate requirements for a complete application include application form, application fee, official transcripts and records, test scores, and recommendations. More information can be obtained at the Graduate School, Virginia Tech. Financial aid is provided on a competitive basis based on your application material.

Qualification and Positions

Currently, our group has one or two openings for Ph.D. students for Spring/Fall 2024. Preference will be given to students with two or three of the following credentials:

  1. A M.S. degree in signal processing/machine learning/optimization/networking or related fields.
  2. Passionate about the research challenges in Beyond 5G and 6G wireless networks.
  3. Good understanding in stochastic process, communication systems, and MIMO communications.
  4. Relevant research experience in the field of machine learning and signal processing: neural networks, wireless networking, and MIMO communications.
  5. Sufficient programming skills in Python, and C/C++.
  6. Hands-on experience with USRP.

Note that GRE is required by the ECE department for general admission. However, I choose research partners based on his/her passion about research as well as his/her research potentials.

Interested students should send the following documents via email to ljliu at vt dot edu:

  • Detailed Resume (highlight your strength and experience);
  • Transcripts;
  • Papers published/submitted;
  • Personal/research statement;
  • Everything else, you believe, would enhance your application package

Highly competitive stipends for tuition and living expenses are available to qualified students.
