DiscoverEE Days welcomes newly admitted grad students, connecting them with EE students, faculty and staff. The 2-day event brings everyone together; encouraging exploration of the department and current research. The event concludes with a student research poster session, social reception and raffle. This year, admits were able to view and discuss 25 posters.
Posters present research from EE's core and subareas, and is an opportunity for graduate students to verbally and visually present their work. Posters are judged by a group of staff, faculty and students. Judging criteria is based on overall oral presentation, visual quality, and presenting within a one minute timeframe. Three winners, one from each core research area, were selected. The awards went to:
• Neal Master (pictured center), Information Systems & Science
• Nicholas McDonald (not pictured), Hardware/Software Systems
• Ning Wang (pictured left), Physical Technology & Science
Winning presenters were awarded a gift card and certificate, presented by Professor Andrea Goldsmith (pictured right).
The raffle winner was Sawaby Mahmoud, pictured with Professor Goldsmith below. His area of research is Information Systems and Science.
Congratulations and thanks to everyone for participating in DiscoverEE Days.
