News and events for the 2009-2010 academic year
IEEE Kickoff picnic
It has become a tradition for the student IEEE group to sponsor a picnic off-campus to get all the faculty, students, and staff together for a fun time to begin the year. For several years the event has been held in the Bright's backyard. Everyone enjoys pizza, volleyball, frisbee, touch football, and more. It's a great chance for freshmen students to start getting to know the the other Electrical Engineering majors as well as the faculty and staff in an informal setting.
This page will be updated frequently through the school year as things happen. Check back for information on guest speakers, IEEE events, faculty research news, student project news, etc.
Once again for 2009, the student engineering organizations are planning HoytFest, where all GCC students are invited to Hoyt Hall for food, games, and demonstrations of student projects. It's a chance for the everyone to see where the engineers hang out and find out about what they're doing, as well has have some fun. Below are some pictures from HoytFest 2008.
9/9/2009 ECE senior gives talk on summer
Senior Peter Staats presented a talk regarding the summer research project he was involved in at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution over the summer. The talk was part of the Hopeman Student Research Seminar Series. Peter was involved in a team investigating whether water turbulence is a factor in causing oyster larvae to settle down and start a colony. In his talk he described the experimental system and his role, which involved developing the image processing and other software to track oyster larvae over time.
