2018 was another active year for the EE Department.
In March, we hosted the inaugural Linvill Seminar, allowing us to continue his inspirational legacy. Our guest speaker, Professor John Hennessy presented “The End of the Road for General Purpose Processors & the Future of Computing.” The entire video is available online.
Our summer REU program provided 35 advanced research projects for EE undergraduates, who worked with faculty and grad students. Some of the research projects lead to article submissions, or publications.
Our PhD students continue their research contributions ranging from global health to machine learning to nanomaterials. Read about their awards and acknowledgments on our website’s News section. Be sure to browse the faculty and staff articles, too!
As we move into 2019, I’m delighted to acknowledge our department’s 125th year — Thank you for being part of our history and our future!
I look forward to seeing you in 2019.
