  1. Welcome tothe Electrical Engineering andComputer Science Department Randy H. Katz, Chair Andy R. Neureuther, Assoc. Chair EECS Department University of California, Berkeley Berkeley, CA 94720-1770

  2. Presentation Outline • Academic Reputation • Department Culture • Facilities and Research Funding • Faculty Growth • Student Population • Summary & Conclusions

  3. EECS Academic Reputation Among top combined EECS Departments NRC Rankings CS ranked #3, EE ranked #4 (2 hundredths below #3 Illinois) Berkeley Engineering ranked #2 overall Berkeley ranked #1 overall (34 of 35 departments in top 10) U S News & World Report (1997) Comp Eng ranked #2 (behind MIT, ahead of CMU, Stanford) EE ranked #4 (behind MIT, Stanford, Illinois, ahead of Michigan) Engineering School ranked #3 (behind MIT, Stanford) U S News & World Report (1996) CS ranked #1 (tied with MIT, Stanford), UG program ranked #3 Computer Engineering ranked #3 EE ranked #4 Berkeley UG Engineering program ranked #2

  4. 1978 AT&T Bell Labs MIT LCS Stanford Xerox PARC CMU IBM Research Berkeley Illinois Cornell SRI 1998 Stanford MIT LCS Berkeley CMU Lucent Bell Labs IBM Research AT&T Labs University of Washington MIT Media Lab Xerox PARC Business Weeks’ World Leading Computer Science Labs #2 #5

  5. Departmental Culture • Computing joins mathematics and physics as core of the sciences and engineering • Support for large-scale interdisciplinary experimental research projects • Architecture: RISC, RAID, NOW, IRAM, CNS-1, BRASS, • Parallel Systems: Multipole, ScaLAPACK, Spilt-C, Titanium • Berkeley Digital Library Project: Environmental Data • InfoPad: Portable Multimedia Terminal for Classroom Use • PATH Intelligent Highway Project, FAA Center of Excellence • Computation and algorithmic methods in EE • Circuit Simulation, Process Simulation, Optical Lithography • CAD Synthesis/Optimization, Control Systems • Increasing collaboration with other departments in Engineering and elsewhere on campus

  6. Departmental Facilities • Common research infrastructure is critical to successful collaboration • TITAN Computing Infrastructure • Ultrasparc NOW widely used for research in the Department • Large-scale tertiary storage systems • Digital Library Project: on-line environmental images • Tertiary Disk Project: MultiTByte archive of SFMOMA collections • 2400 IP nodes, 35 subnetworks, 30 servers • $2.4 million/year budget • Buildings are large-scale experimental networking testbeds • 100BaseT to desktop, fiber optic backbone • Wireless LAN throughout building • Recent upgrade to Cory Hall • Instruction: 400 workstations/PCs, 12 servers

  7. Research Funding (1996-97) 1% 2% List price equipment and cash 25% 6% 10% 38% 16% Other DoD = Air Force, Army, Office of Naval Research (ONR), etc. Other Federal = DOE, NASA, National Institutes of Health (NIH), etc.

  8. Student and Faculty Statistics • Faculty • EE: 41.75 FTE • CS: 33 FTE • Architecture, CAD, Signal Processing, Circuits faculty “overlap” • 78.75 authorized FTE • Undergraduate Program • 893.5 (515 in CS, 378.5 in EE) in B.S. program • 212 in B.A. program • 1105.5 total (66% CS, 34% EE) • Graduate Program • 300 EE • 200 CS

  9. College of Engineering Growth • Demand for CS skills far exceeds supply in California • University administration and Governor Wilson targets student and faculty growth in CS and engineering • Thrust at Berkeley is Bioengineering, Computer Science, and Engineering Science (Computational Engineering) across the College • EECS to accept 140 additional students in return for 6-8 new FTE over next 4 years • 4 faculty searches this year (includes 2 growth positions) • 3 faculty searches requested for next year (to 81.75 FTE)

  10. NSF-Industry-University Leverage SimMillennium SimMillennium infrastructure is strategic to the future of science & engineering on this campus Intel $6M IBM $400K Bay Networks $1.1M @ 70% ($350K) NSF Industry Titan Campus $1.5M People, Maintenance, Campus networking infrastructure Departments $675K Construct, run, manage local clusters

  11. Faculty Growth 1997-98 • Michael Jordan: Computational Learning/Neural Networks (joint with Statistics) • Anthony Joseph: Mobile Computing • Kurt Keutzer: Computer-Aided Design • John Kubiatowicz: Computer Architectures • Senior Hire: Theoretical CS, Director-Designate International Computer Science Institute • Senior Hire: Communications Theory

  12. Faculty Growth 1996-97 • Tsu-Jae King: Intelligent Display Technology • James Landay: User Interface • Steven McCanne: Multimedia Networking • Kris Pister: MEMS 1995-96 • Connie Chang-Hasnain: Optoelectronics • Joseph Hellerstein: Databases • Tom Henzinger: Automatic Verification • Christos Papadimitriou: Theoretical CS • David Tse: Networking/Communications

  13. High Priority Recruiting Areas • High Capability Systems • Information Processing and Management, emphasis on Data Management and/or Digital Libraries • AI, emphasis on natural language/knowledge representation • Human-Computer Interaction • BioInformatics • Modeling, Simulation, Visualization • Graphics/Multimedia • Theoretical Computer Science, emphasis on algorithms • High Performance Systems • Large-scale Software Systems

  14. 158 142 286 243 UG Degree History at Berkeley #Degrees About half are CS degrees Year

  15. Efforts in Increasing Diversity • Center for Undergraduate Matters • Vice Chair Mike Lieberman • Academic Coordinator, Dr. Sheila Humphreys • Feeding the Pipeline • Berkeley Pledge/Interactive University: K-12 outreach to local schools • Excellence and Diversity Programs • Computer Science Re-entry Program • NSF REU-funded SUPERB (Summer Undergraduate Program in Engineering at Berkeley) Program • CORE (Clearinghouse of Opportunities for Research Experiences) • GANN Graduate Fellowships • Special efforts to recruit and retain admitted undergraduate women • Active student groups: SWE, UAWICSE • CoE MESA Program

  16. Summary • “Is this a great time, or what?” • New interdisciplinary research • Continued support for hiring new faculty • High demand for our students • Challenges are those of success • Exploding student demand • Developing a new, compelling vision of EE and CS • Entering the 21st Century with new strength, vigor, and sense of mission
