Students with a passion for improved solar energy systems, medical imaging, vehicles that can drive themselves, small powerful antennas, and 3-D prototyping were treated to a rare simultaneous display of all these technologies by the University of Arizona electrical and computer engineering department Nov. 30

The best of UA electrical and computer engineering research was presented by the faculty who teach these applications and engineering designs to prospective students interested in learning more about these programs. All displays and demonstrations took place at the ECE building on the UA campus.

The event delivered as promised: a better understanding of how graduates of UA ECE programs can improve quality of life for society through technology. Attendees had access to these faculty and their research technologies:

  • Wolfgang Fink
    Planetary rovers for extreme environments
  • Linda Powers 
    Rapid water assessment to prevent disease
  • Richard Ziolkowski
    Extreme antennas from metamaterials and nanomaterials
  • Michael Gehm
    3D image replication for specialized components
  • Jonathan Sprinkle
    Unmanned SUV smart car simulation
  • Ray Kostuk
    Imaging technologies for early cancer detection
