ECE Highlighted at Women in Engineering Summer Program
UIC’s Women in Engineering Summer Program (WIESP) provided high school girls with the power to build and learn more about the endless possibilities of working in engineering. The month-long summer program was made up of 25 rising juniors and seniors from around the city and the surrounding suburbs, and focused on Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE). It is designed to be very hands-on and interactive, and understanding the importance of students taking ownership of their work while demonstrating team work and collaboration. “I believe it is important to host an engineering program like WIESP because we cannot expect women to choose engineering as a profession if they are not exposed to the field. Through this program, we addresses that, in…

ECE Modifies Curriculum to Improve Student Experience
The world is constantly changing, and to ensure our students are getting the best education that will prepare them for graduate school or the working world, the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) enhanced its curriculum with several positive changes. The modifications are geared toward improving the curriculum for mainly second-year students and transfer students in all three undergraduates programs – Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, and Engineering Physics. “We looked very hard at all of our course offerings, and we decided to think in terms of labs, experience for students, and whether the course content was up to date with all that is going on in technology these days,” said ECE Professor Daniela Tuninetti. “We saw that we could make…

Community Projects 2017
ECE Students Giving Back to the Community through Senior Design Projects
Embracing and partnering with the community is one of the key elements of UIC’s strategic priorities. And 16 students in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) are taking this mission to heart and using their engineering knowledge and skills to help four Chicago nonprofits.Under the direction of ECE Clinical Assistant Professor Renata A. Revelo, the students partnered with Enlace Chicago, Lakeview Pantry, Little Village Environmental Justice Organization, and People for Community Recovery to give back to local nonprofit agencies that are supporting Chicago residents.“The students are working in teams on the projects as part of their senior design coursework at UIC, but the projects will take them to areas throughout Chicago,” said Revelo.The nonprofits provided a problem statement, during…
