Academic Profile

Since joining FDU in 2006, after 25 years of industrial R&D, Prof. Mondal feels that our students must get the latest information on the subject matter and be prepared for the job market. Therefore, he has introduced new courses, and new lab exercises in electrical and computer engineering using hardware and software tools prevalent in academia and industry.

Digital Signal Processing has been a key driver of speech and video processing technologies for the last few decades. It also happens to be the backbone of our modern digital communication systems. In these courses, students not only learn the rigors of analytical techniques but also modeling, simulation, hardware development, and coding of processors.

His strong interest in engineering and computing and student welfare has led him to enhance the existing information technology program both at the Metro and the Vancouver campuses and develop several 5-year degree programs. He helps the engineering, technology, computing, and information technology programs get ABET-accredited and retain it.

Professor Mondal led efforts in getting FDU designated as the Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education (CAE-CDE) starting in 2013. He co-developed a new MS degree program and was awarded $300k by NSA in 2017 for developing cyber exercises for multiple courses.

Our students are benefiting from the FDU’s CAE-CDE designation. Currently, four FDU computer science majors are enjoying the status of a DoD Cyber Scholar with all the associated tuition, stipend, internship, and job benefits.  Since 2019, Prof. Mondal has been successful in getting FDU awarded over $1.3m by DoD under this scholarship program. He co-directs the high school outreach program CSEOP to form a pipeline of cyber students.

Professor Mondal contributed to university-level education policy, personnel review, faculty, and other committees. He received the University Distinguished Faculty for Service award in 2022.
