• In early 2005, Youngstown State University and Delphi Packard established an academic partnership in a two-year agreement. Dr. Jalal Jalali, Chair of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, is the principal project investigator for YSU. He is also the director of YSU’s Electromagnetic Field Research and Instrumentation Center (EFRIC), where the research is conducted. EFRIC, a Presidential Academic Center for Excellence in Research (PACER), was established in the Rayen College of Engineering and Technology with funding from the School of Graduate Studies and Research in 2004.
