WNCG Profs. Gustavo de Veciana and Jeff Andrews recently received an award for Best Collaboration with the wireless group at Huawei. This international award goes to a funded university collaboration the company deems most impactful from among their offices and partner institutions worldwide.  

“We are very pleased to accept this award,” Prof. de Veciana states. “The experience of working with engineers at Huawei has been very rewarding and fun.”  

The collaborative research project concerned the study of new scheduling policies for next generation wireless systems.

“We’ve worked with Huawei’s Research and Development groups in Plano, Ottawa, and New Jersey for several years now on 4G and 5G cellular research,” Prof. Andrews states. “It’s great to see some of the ideas we’ve generated with their clever engineers recognized by Huawei headquarters.”

Huawei is a member of the WNCG Industrial Affiliates Program. The Industrial Affiliate Program allows companies to become stakeholders in WNCG and to participate in the growth and direction of the center.

In addition to benefiting from regular interaction with 130 graduate students and 22 top faculty, affiliates receive special access to high-quality students for recruitment purposes, first views of research publications and business opportunities for joint research collaborations. Affiliate interaction has inspired many graduate student dissertations and created a fertile recruiting ground for affiliate companies.
