If you follow BYU news, you might have heard about the CubeSat - the small, six-sided “spacecraft selfie cam” a team of our electrical engineers will soon launch into space. The handsome fellow narrating the video is PhD student Patrick Walton, and the unprecedented CubeSat project - which he started as an undergraduate - was just his warm up. In addition to the soon-to-be-launched space camera, Walton is building a fleet of tiny weather satellites with the potential to fill the gaping holes in forecasting data. He started the project, called Care Weather, in January 2019, with business partner Alex Laraway and faculty mentor Dr. David Long.

You might recognize her name. In 2018, she won the First Place Graduate Student Award at the International Telemetry Conference (ITC), and last year she won the Myron Hiram Nichols Telemetry Spectrum Award at the ITC. This month, Farah Arabian - a PhD student studying under Dr. Rice - received another award: third place in the engineering track at the Intermountain Engineering, Technology, and Computing Conference (i-ETC) for her paper “Who’s on First in 5G Mobile Networks: Equalizers or Polarization Diversity Combiners?”. She compared two mobile phone architectures to see which outperformed the other, specifically observing how the order of combining and equalization in signal processing affected the outcomes.

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.
