A new laboratory experience, called The WHY Lab, opened its doors to all ECE students in January 2020. Located in room 132, the Lab welcomes freshmen who are searching for a new avenue of study, seniors who are putting together their final Design Project and everybody else in-between!
ECE Prof. Sudharman K. Jayaweera delivered the keynote speech at the IEEE ComSoc-SL Tech Meetup held on Dec 12, 2019 at the Mobitel Innovation Center, Trace City, Sri Lanka.
ECE Assoc. Prof. Meeko Oishi is leading a multi-institutional 5-year, $5.5 million project funded by the National Science Foundation through the Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) program.
Graduate students can get speedy feedback on their writing and research projects by submitting their written work, 24/7, to the Graduate Online Writing Lab, or "GrOWL!"
Meeko Oishi, an associate professor at ECE, has been chosen to participate in the 2020-2021 Defense Science Study Group (DSSG). The DSSG is a highly-selective program. This year, there were 178 nominations from 97 universities, and from those, 15 were selected for this year’s class.
