Program Highlights

IEEE student chapter

The IEEE student chapter participated in the IEEE Xtreme competition in fall 2017. One of our teams placed in the top 35% and the other was in the top 50%, which was great for the first time competing.

The IEEE student chapter also held a soldering workshop for students in November, and plan to hold a surface mount PCB layout workshop in the spring.

The group will participate in the Micromouse competition in June 2018 at UCLA and are considering hosting a drone competition at CSU Chico next year. They have also hosted a series of lectures on MATLAB/Simulink that were conducted by Gavin Nielsen, an alumni from our BS CMPE and MS ECE programs.

Undergraduate Research

Faculty member Zhaohong Wang has received internal research funding and will work with two of our undergraduate students (at least one of whom is a 1st generation college student) on the project during spring 2018. One of the students was engaged in research with Dr. Wang during summer and fall 2017.

Faculty Research

Kurtis Kredo leads two research projects and fellow faculty members, Richard Bednar, Hadil Mustafa, and Zahrasadat Alavi are also contributing to these projects. Several upper division undergraduate and MS ECE students are also engaged in research that supports the aims of these projects.

Society of Women Engineers

Chico State's Society of Women Engineers (SWE) continues to be an active chapter including students from EECE and throughout the College outreach activity with the Girl Scouts. A group from SWE, along with Hadil Mustafa went to the WE'17, world's largest conference for women in engineering and technology. They have activities planned for Imagineer Day in spring 2018.

Peer Tutoring

A tutoring group has been organized by faculty member, Hadil Mustafa. The tutors are upper division EE and CMPE students who help students in our lower division courses. Volunteers from HKN, our professional honor society, also tutors students in upper division courses.

It has served a large number of our EE, CMPE, MECA, ME, and CS students and helps students learning the fundamental concepts in our field. The result should increase the students' success not only in these lower division courses but also in upper division courses as they will have a strong foundation upon which they can build. A secondary benefit is that the tutors themselves gain a deeper understanding of the concepts as they explain them to the students who come for tutoring.
