With a record-setting grant from the NSF, the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is working to meet an industry need! The ECE Department is featured in an article in the Commons.
This weekend, ECE student Trevor Youngquist will be inducted into Alpha Sigma Nu, the Jesuit Honor Society! No more than 4% of Juniors, Seniors, and graduate students at Seattle University are selected for membership in Alpha Sigma Nu. Congratulations again Trevor!
During winter quarter 2014, Dr. John Carter taught a course titled
Mathematical Models of Wave-Energy Extraction. ECE students from the class, Derek Gowrylow, Loren Klemesrud, Pat Sprenger, and
Jonathan West spent their spring break in Chile applying their studies from the course. They learned about models of water waves, wave-energy extraction devices, the associated
mathematics and engineering, and Chilean culture before traveling to Chile to then work with experts in the Department of Hydraulic and Environmental
Engineering at the Pontific Catholic University of Chile ("La Catolica"). Learn more about their trip here!

Derek Gowrylow was one of six selected from a worldwide pool of undergraduate applicants to represent Seattle University and the ECE Department at the annual exposition in Chicago. He will receive a free trip to the exposition and will gain a lot of visibility for himself and Seattle University. Join us in congratulating our new student ambassador!

Dr Henry Louie spoke to the Seattle University Center for Justice and Sustainability about a project he and and Seattle University affiliated volunteers began in rural Kenya in December 2013. Here is an excerpt from the article:
"Dr. Louie (Assistant Professor in the
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering) suggests that engineers
often spend their time making incremental changes to luxury items. Humanitarian
engineering, on the other hand, “gets back to the roots of the profession of
engineering” by providing energy, clean water, shelter and health care for
those most in need. Since his expertise is in electricity and power, Dr. Louie
seeks out projects that address “energy poverty” – or the fact that about 1.4
billion people do not have access to electricity."

Senior design students place their books aside a bit, roll up their sleeves, and put into action their training and skills in year-long design projects that involve real projects and real clients;

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.
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)
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.
Success on the Zambezi River
Senior Design Team 13.5 successfully implemented their hydro electric generator on an existing waterwheel in Zambia. The electricity generated will be used to charge batteries for vaious applications.
Notes from the field: The final waterwheel configuration, now including the spiral water pump is pictured above. A final test was to see if the original spiral pump could be added to the other side. It indeed pumped water to a height of about 50 feet. The existing pump uses 1kW to get the same volume and height. Combined with the generator, this device has the energy equivalent of 1.8kW. This is reliably pumping water and producing energy 24 hours per day.
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!
