Every Fall the student officers of IEEE and Eta Kappa Nu organize the annual ECE Fall Fest to kick off the start of the semester. It’s a great time for students, faculty and staff to enjoy some good food and mingle with one another. Thanks to everyone who came out!

In April 2018, the ECE department at Lehigh University celebrated a huge milestone- the 125th Anniversary of the department! Alumni, students, guest and faculty members all showed their support in our one day celebration. Many thanks to our key note speakers who took time out of their day to talk to our department about the “Future Directions of ECE”, “Electrical Engineering: Future in Industry & Areas”, and “How can we Improve ECE at Lehigh”. Our Keynote Speakers included: David Bader (Professor & Chair of the School of Computational Science and Engineering, College of Computing at Georgia Institute of Technology), Michael Reffle (Infinera Corporation) and Philip Wong (Professor at Standford University). Our Panel Speakers included: Aref Chowdhury (CTO of Optics at Nokia), Jeff Karper (Manager, Power Systems Engineering at Lockheed Martin-Rotary & Mission Systems), Sean Anderson (Principal Engineering with MACOM Technology Solutions), Thomas Charisoulis and Eileen Mazzochette.
On April 27, 2018 the ECE department held their first graduate research symposium. The symposium was intended to give ECE graduate students the opportunity to present their research to the Lehigh Community, exchange ideas, and to practice for upcoming conferences. The symposium also gave the undergrad students an opportunity to learn about the research programs in the ECE department and encourage their pursuit of graduate studies. The ECE faculty voted on the best research content and presentation. The winners are:
1st Place- Yuan Jin “High Power Single Mode Teraherz Cascade Lasers“
And there was a tie for second place:
Md Fayad Hasan “Modeling Epilepsy and Neuronal Circuits”
Wei Sun “Valence Subband Engineering of AllnN/GaN Digital Alloy for Polarization-Insensitive Applications in Mid-and Deep-UV Regime”
Thanks to everyone who participated! Keep an eye out for the next one!
