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.

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.

Dr. Steven Allen, PhD, described his undergraduate self as a bog-standard student with a fairly unremarkable track record, but the research professor - who joins the department faculty this fall - has built himself a considerably remarkable track record over the past ten years. He holds two degrees and ever-growing expertise in MRI technology and biomedical engineering.

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is pleased to welcome associate professor Dr. Scott Lloyd to the program. Dr. Lloyd originally completed his bachelor’s degree in Chemistry, but after taking several computer-related courses as an undergraduate and realizing that he both enjoyed and excelled in the classes, he made the academic shift to Computer Science for graduate school.

Nanotechnology Journal will soon be publishing a research paper detailing the findings of several ECE students. The team, led by Dr. Aaron Hawkins and consisting of ECEn students Zach Walker, Tanner Wells, and Kalliyan Lay as well as collaborators Mohammad Sampad and Holger Schmidt from the UC Santa Cruz School of Engineering, created a new technique for fabricating membranes so thin that they measure their width exclusively in nanometers.

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!
