Fulton College of Engineering and professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department, has been nominated for the 2020 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year® award. Dean Jensen is an Entrepreneur of the Year® finalist for the Utah region along with his business partner, former BYU Electrical and Computer Engineering faculty member David Arnold.
For the past two weeks, the reopened Harvey’s Cafe has been blessing (or cursing) the Engineering Building with the smell of bacon, but that’s not the only change in the air. Throughout the building, doors remind visitors to wear face coverings, the floors direct them to stand six feet apart, and the bathroom sinks re-emphasize the timeless need to wash those hands. Not only does it look different, but for students and professors in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, it feels different. The classes have turned upside down.
The start of the academic year brings with it advancements, awards, and recognitions for outstanding faculty members. The university conference, which transpired the final week of August, honored this year’s worthy faculty and staff members on both university and college levels.
