Hamid Fardi, PhD

Professor of Electrical Engineering

Hamid Fardi received his PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 1986. He has been with the Department of Electrical Engineering of the University of Colorado Denver since 1992 where he is now a full professor. Before joining CU Denver, Fardi was a postdoctoral fellow at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. From 1988 to 1992 he was with NSF Center for Millimeter-Microwave Computer Aided Design of the University of Colorado. Dr. Fardi was a visiting research scientist at National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) in 1996 and 1997. He is a frequent research visitor of National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST). Dr. Fardi is the coordinator of NIST PREP (Professional Research Experience Program) at CU Denver. Dr. Fardi's research interests concern the physics and simulation of novel semiconductor devices. He teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in electronics at both Denver and the Boulder Campuses of the University of Colorado.​


Dr. Fardi has received a $2.7M award from the U.S. Department of Commerce as part of the NIST PREP program. PREP places undergraduate and graduate students as well as pos-doc researchers in NIST labs to gain hands-on experience.
