Electrical and Computer Engineering Assistant Professor Gunar Schirner and Professor David Kaeli were awarded a $450K National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to develop "Power Efficient Emerging Heterogeneous Platforms." 

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950 "to promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare; to secure the national defense…" With an annual budget of $7.2 billion (FY 2014), we are the funding source for approximately 24 percent of all federally supported basic research conducted by America's colleges and universities. In many fields such as mathematics, computer science and the social sciences, NSF is the major source of federal backing.
