Research Laboratory Development

Vladimir Mitin has developed the research Laboratory Materials, Device and Circuit Simulations Laboratory in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Wayne. In August 2003 he moved the Laboratory to the University at Buffalo. He has interaction with several researchers inside and outside the university and recruit faculty, postdocs and students to work in the laboratory. After graduation, students are mostly working as device and circuits simulation software developers.


Since 1992 supervised up to six persons each semester (visitors, postdocs, Ph.D. and MS students)
