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.
Students, please nominate professors and staff for the following: Camille Toutonghi Distinguished Staff Award, Outstanding Teacher Award, and Outstanding Faculty Adviser Award. Nomination directions can be found here. Deadline is midnight on April 26, 2013!
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.
ECE students Patrick Berg (’14), Jeremy Deibell (‘13), Aaron Fitch (’13) and Caitlin Ryberg (‘13) were named PES Scholars by the IEEE Power & Energy Society. The nation-wide competitive scholarship “supports the most promising future engineers in power and energy”. ECE Assistant Professor Henry Louie served on the Steering Committee that created the multi-million dollar scholarship program, and notes that “Given the relative size of Seattle University, having four PES Scholars is a testament to our strong and growing power engineering program.” More information about the scholarship is found here www.ee-scholarship.org.
Seattle University ECE students were treated to a visit by the OMICRON Roadshow Bus, a “classroom on wheels” that is designed to teach about utility substation maintenance and operation. OMICRON is an international company that produces testing and diagnostic equipment for the electric power industry. Experiential, outside-the-classroom experiences such as the bus tour are a distinction of a Seattle University education
It has been said that 90 percent of the engineers in the world design products and solutions for the world’s wealthiest 10 percent. As part of Seattle University’s commitment to social justice, ECE students spent a recent Saturday learning design methods for the “other 90 percent”. Every night, nearly one billion people are left without adequate light to study, socialize or otherwise be productive. To learn about appropriate lighting methods, students constructed “Lightsticks”—small, battery-operating LED lighting devices--using simple materials and construction methods. The workshop was led by Dr. Henry Louie, Michael Dauenhauer and Peter Dauenhauer and was sponsored by a Seattle University Global Grant.
Did you know that natural gas supplies nearly 25 percent of electrical energy in the United States? In Fall of 2012, Seattle U ECE students toured Puget Sound Energy’s Encogen natural gas-fired power plant in Bellingham, Washington to learn about this important energy resource. Students saw how natural gas is used to generate electricity through combustion turbines and steam turbines. The tour was conducted as part of the Electromechanical Energy Conversion course taught by Dr. Henry Louie.
Engineering challenges I faced at the Medishare hospital Haiti. George Balagtas
I generated a test protocol toward hopefully restoring X-ray functionality. The mechanical engineer who has been doing his best to troubleshoot the machine believes that there might be faulty circuitry on the PCB assembly. I did indeed discover three burnt out transistors, a couple of charred passives, and even two cracked IC's nearby the board's voltage regulators. Literally, that board is toast!

Society of Women Engineers - Chelsea Ryberg a recipient of the Collegiate Member Award.
“Chelsea is admired by her peers and teachers not only for her tremendous amount of enthusiasm, creativity and leadership within SWE, but within the Seattle University campus and community as well,” says Kelly Schable, account manager at the Boeing Company.
Nick Arvanitidis, EE Graduate ’63, recipient Alumnus of the Year
Nick Arvanitidis considers himself “a philosopher,” one who offers sage advice culled from rich life experiences in the academic and business worlds. Being named Alumnus of the Year is a great honor, Arvanitidis says. “I am very grateful for what SU did for me,” he says. “Not just going to school here, but the mentoring that was provided. This is very humbling.”
