We're halfway through Fall Semester, and momentum is building on many fronts. I was interviewed by President Conoley about Space Beach and the COE's pipeline of highly trained grads. One of our ME alumni, NASA science communicator Dana Bolles, was part of the recent AstroAccess mission. And the COE is delighted to celebrate new partnerships with the Center for Inclusive Computing and Keysight Technologies. We are working on strategic planning and are also excited to be planning a Beach Women in Engineering Conference for next spring.
To create even more momentum and see more of our beautiful city, this month I also ran the Long Beach Half Marathon. Once again, Go BEACH!!
CECS Awarded $500K Grant from Center for Inclusive Computing
The Computer Engineering & Computer Science Department has been awarded a $500,000 grant from Center for Inclusive Computing at Northeastern University to recruit and retain more female students. The CIC is funded by Pivotal Ventures, an investment and incubation company created by Melinda French Gates.
Keysight Welcomed as New College of Engineering Partner
Keysight Technologies' donation of test and measurement equipment will enable a refresh of three Electrical Engineering labs and one Computer Engineering & Computer Science lab, and also allow for remote operation.
Longtime COE supporter and electrical engineering alumni Chris Hernandez, who recently retired from Northrop Grumman, shares thoughts about his four-decade aerospace career, as well as his renewed enthusiasm for volunteer organizations, including one he founded.
