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.

Dr. Joshua Mangelson is coming to us from his one-year post-doc in the Field of Robotics Center at Carnegie Mellon University. Dr. Mangelson is an alumnus of BYU and the University of Michigan. When he was here as an undergraduate student, he was the digital lab director and a teaching assistant for ECEN 220 (Fundamentals of Digital Systems) and ECEN 320 (Digital System Design). He also did research with Dr. Nelson in the Configurable Computing Lab and was a TA in the Math Lab.

Every summer, bright young minds gather together on BYU campus to learn the secrets of engineering at Chip Camp. The department staffs full-time ECE students to lead these middle schoolers in exercises designed to open their eyes to the possibilities within the electrical and computer engineering fields. It’s three days of fun with educational undertones.

Nate Vance is a senior in the Computer Engineering program. After his internship at Apple was turned into a remote position, he decided to use his computer engineering skills to work on personal projects as well. He developed his own simulated race system to practice skeleton racing (yes, like in the Olympics!). His system is made up of an electric longboard, a proximity sensor, and a race timer. Swipe to watch Nate's project in action!
