A. James Clark School of Engineering
Mamadou I. Wade received a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Howard University, Washington, DC, U.S.A., a Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Electrical Engineering from Tuskegee University, Tuskegee, Alabama, U.S.A., a B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from Mercer University, Macon, Georgia, U.S.A., and a Graduate Certification in Cybersecurity from Howard University, Washington, DC, U.S.A.
Before joining the University of Maryland, he was an Instructor/Lecturer at Tuskegee University in the Department of Electrical Engineering. Then he was an Assistant professor/Lecturer at Howard University in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Dr. Wade has taught 20 different courses in Electrical and Computer Engineering, including undergraduate and graduate levels, at Tuskegee University and Howard University.
Since the fall of 2022, he has been a Lecturer in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Maryland College Park.
His research interests and recent publications lie in Cybersecurity/Cryptography and Telescope Coronagraph Systems used to detect faint extra-solar planets orbiting a nearby star at a distance of light years away from Earth.

Dissertation Title: "Distributed Image Encryption Based on a Homomorphic Cryptographic Approach."
Master's Thesis Title: "Radar Geolocation Using a Global Positioning System (G.P.S.) Based Hybrid Time Difference of Arrival (TDOA) and Frequency Difference of Arrival (FDOA) Methods."
Two areas of master's Concentration: Communication Systems and Power Systems.
- Dr. Wade obtained the Best Presentation Award for the paper titled "Red Green Blue Image Encryption Based on Paillier Cryptographic System," he presented at the 19th International Conference on Network, Communication, and Computing, Dec 18-19, 2017, San Diego, USA, (ICNCC 2017). Other researchers who presented papers at this international conference were from industry, government agencies, and faculty members from Universities worldwide, including North and South America, Asia, and Europe.
Dr. Wade's research interests and recent publications lie primarily in the following two areas:
- Telescope-coronagraph systems that detect faint extra-solar planets orbiting a nearby star at a distance of light years away from Earth. This research was a collaboration between some scientists/researchers at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and three faculty members (including Dr. Wade) at Howard University in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.
