Welcome to the Lab of Prof. Al Faruque - Advanced Integrated Cyber-Physical Systems (AICPS)

Mohammad Al Faruque is currently with the University of California Irvine (UCI), where he is an associate professor (with tenure) and directing the Cyber-Physical Systems Lab. Prof. Al Faruque is the recipient of the IEEE Technical Committee on Cyber-Physical Systems Early-Career Award 2018 and the IEEE CEDA Ernest S. Kuh Early Career Award 2016. He is also therecipient of the  UCI Academic Senate Distinguished Early-Career Faculty Award for Research 2017 andthe School of Engineering Early-Career Faculty Award for Research 2017. He served as an Emulex Career Development Chair from October 2012 till July 2015. Before, he was with Siemens Corporate Research and Technology in Princeton, NJ.

His current research is focused on the system-level design of Internet-of-Things (IoT), Embedded Systems, and Cyber-Physical-Systems (CPS) with special interests on design automation methodologies, data-driven modeling techniques including machine learning for design, CPS security, etc. His work involves novel hardware and software design for various CPS application areas, including Industry 4.0 (manufacturing), smart-grid, and autonomous vehicles.

[The AICPS lab is currently looking for highly motivated Ph.D. students and postdoctoral researchers. If you are interested in the above-mentioned research areas and meet the admission criteria of UCI then contact]

Prof. Al Faruque received his B.Sc. degree in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) in 2002, and M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from Aachen Technical University and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany in 2004 and 2009, respectively.
