The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering has received a $250,000 grant from the W. M. Keck Foundation to support the development of an Internet of Things-based Innovation Lab.

The grant will enable the faculty in ECE to add Internet of Things-related skills to the undergraduate curriculum and will foster the growth and success of the new Fr. Wood Innovation Lab being created in Bannan 210.

The award will “support undergraduate research and help cultivate an informal learning environment that inspires curiosity, exploration, and discovery,” says Assistant Professor Shiny Abraham, the Principal Investigator on the grant.
