Electrical Engineering: A Pathway to New Forms of Creativity

April 12, 2021 01:58 PM
Electrical Engineering senior Keaton Shurilla pictures a future where he can roll up to the club and experience a 360-degree audio system - not through strategically-spaced speakers, but through speakers with the technological prowess to project sound everywhere in the room. In that imagined future, he wants someone across the world to tune in with a virtual reality system so sophisticated it feels like they’re in the club with him. He is combining his passions for technology and the arts to make that future more feasible.
