Students stand in front of poster at Expo eventOn April 6, 2023 the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering is hosted our first Student Spring Expo in 1240 Driftmier Engineering. Undergraduate and graduate students in ECE presented their research as a poster and/or an interactive demonstration. Student clubs and organizations shared information on their table displays. We had more than 105 participants, both as presenters and as guests at the Expo. A “People’s Choice” contest was held for the research presentations, and two top winners were selected (a TIE!) between the Virtual Experiences Laboratory and the Photonics and Soft Robotics Laboratory. Congratulations to Andrew Rukangu and Anton Franzluebbers from the “Virtual Experiences Laboratory” and to Steven Binder, Berek Ha, Irin Bristy, Asad Jabin, Ben Gily, Cole Sterck, and Tommy Anton from the “Photonics and Soft-Robotics Lab.” Both research presentations received a total of 2225 RoboBucks, and will be awarded lunch from ECE School Chair, Dr. Fred Beyette Jr.

“I thought seeing everyone’s projects was very fascinating but I really enjoyed the little competition that was proposed. I thought it was a fantastic idea to have this since it added an extra form of excitement.” – Student presenter at the ECE Student Spring Expo

“Seeing all the research in one place was awesome! It was also really great to be able to show my professors what my research outside of class is. I hope they enjoyed!” – Student presenter at the ECE Expo

“I enjoy the research ideas from each poster in the Expo. I am a research fan, and I learned a lot from the research ideas from different labs. Some of them inspired me on my own research.” – Student presenter at the ECE Expo
