Assistant Professor Henry Louie won the 2013 IEEE Region 6 Northwest Area Outstanding Educator Award. University and pre-university educators from Alaska, Washington and Oregon were considered for the award. The purpose of the award is to “To honor IEEE members and current University or pre-University classroom teachers who have inspired an appreciation and understanding of Mathematics, Science and Technology and the engineering process in students, and who have encouraged students to pursue technical careers.” Dr. Louie was recognized in part for his involvement in creating the IEEE Power & Energy Society Scholarship Plus Initiative, a nation-wide program promoting power engineering by offering scholarships to undergraduate students, and his founding of the local Energy Workforce Workshop, which introduced community college students to careers in the energy industry.
Nicole Ng won the Poster Prize for the Computer Science/Math/Engineering Division at the Murdock College Science Research Program Conference. Her poster was a summary of the research work she did this summer with Dr. Henry Louie looking at the Parametric Modeling of Electric Vehicle Charging Profiles.
ECEGR Awarded National Science Foundation Grant
The National Science Foundation has awarded the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Seattle University a “Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (S-STEM)” grant. The $611, 412 “SU ECE Scholars” grant will provide scholarships to academically talented and financially needy junior-year students who transfer to the ECE Department from two- and four-year colleges. Over the next five years, at least 28 students will be awarded up to $10,000 per student per year during the two years needed to complete their Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) degree.
The main objective of the SU ECE Scholars program is to increase the number of electrical engineering students graduating from SU and entering the engineering workforce. SU ECE scholars will receive financial, academic, and professional development support to ensure their successful progression toward the BSEE degree. Student support services will include peer tutoring and mentoring, study partners, industry mentorship program, professional development seminars, and social activities. Dr. Agnieszka Miguel, Associate Professor and Chair is the Principal Investigator (PI) on this grant while Dr. Margarita Takach, Associate Professor is the co-PI.

Congratulations to Professor Al Moser who is a recipient of the Seattle Youth Initiative Fund for Engagement for the 2013-2014 year. Dr. Moser and a team of ECE students will teach a two week summer robotics program as part of the Rotary Boys and Girls Club summer camp. The camp is offered free to middle school aged participants and provides a fun way to engage minds, expand learning, and expose youth to new technology.
The ECE department's DSP Lab course (ECEGR 407) has been revamped for Spring Quarter thanks to a donation of 12 OMAP-L138 Low Cost Development Kits from Texas Instruments. These kits feature a dual core ARM9 and C6748 Fixed/Floating Point DSP capable of running at 450MHz. With a full host of peripherals, audio/video input and output, and a complete software development suite in Code Composer Studio (also donated by TI), any variety of DSP based solutions for biometric, audio, video processing, communications and analytics can be developed.
Leveraging this new hardware platform as well as the graphical programming environment LabVIEW, instructor Ken Rabold (TI Software Engineering Manager and Seattle University EE alum) has crafted a new set of lab exercises that cover the fundamental aspects of DSP programming in both simulated and real-world environments. The course culminates with the students creating a DSP project of their choice on the OMAP-L138.
Thanks for the donation go to Cathy Wicks of TI's University Program.
