Before joining the University of Kansas, Dr. Lingjia Liu was a Senior Research Engineer at the Dallas Telecommunication R&D Center of Samsung Electronics. He worked on the standardization of LTE-Advanced system, which has been regarded as the global candidate for beyond 4G cellular standard. Dr. Liu is making contributions to the next-generation wireless standards such as IEEE802.16m, 3GPP LTE and 3GPP LTE-Advanced.

Dr. Liu received a 2011 New Faces of Engineering Award from the National Engineers Week Foundation, a coalition of engineering societies, major corporations and government agencies. Members nominate colleagues 30 years old and younger. Dr. Liu was recognized during the 2011 National Asian American Engineers of the Year (AAEOY) ceremony in February.

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
