Highlights of upcoming Webinar

WEBINAR TITLE: The Global Impact of electrical and computer engineering (ECE) in Society - Spotlight on Latin America
DATE: June 14, 2017 at 2:00pm EDT (see local time)


__________ __________

As a professional career, electrical and computer engineering (ECE) is rapidly evolving as new technologies and applications demand engineers who can design, build, maintain, and operate complex systems that are tightly coupled with mechanical, software, and biomedical engineering as well as other disciplines. But not everything is about technology; the social component in the student’s education is also key. Students should have the “ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability,” per the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).

ECE is also part of the “convergence” of disciplines in which “transdisciplinary integration of life sciences, physical sciences, engineering, and beyond helps to form a comprehensive synthetic framework for tackling scientific and societal challenges that exist at the interfaces of multiple fields” (National Academy of Sciences). Many of today’s complex systems that ECE professionals design can be considered systems of systems (SoS) in which different distributed agents that conduct specialized tasks are simultaneously collaborating through wired/wireless communication channels to achieve a global objective. Examples of these SoS include a whole new generation of cyber-physical systems (CPS) that intrinsically involve controls, communications, and computing together with sensing and actuation, cyber security, and data analytics such as smart cities.

Attend this webinar to learn how to join this international effort to improve the ECE academic program through accreditation, student mobility, research collaboration, knowledge networks, and faculty professional development.
