Past seminars

Fall 2018 Seminar: September 6th

Electromagnetics is the study of the effect of charges at rest and charges in motion. This field analyzes, models and designs antenna systems, RF/Microwave circuits, fiber optics and electronic packaging.

Control Systems
Fall 2018 Seminar: September 13th

The specialty area of Control Systems covers the topics of: system modeling, control systems design, neural networks, adaptive and learning systems, fault detection and real-time control applications. These topics are applied in fields from aerospace and semiconductors to power systems and biomedical.


Electronic and mixed-signal circuit design
Fall 2018 Seminar: September 20

The Circuits pathway familiarizes students with analog circuit design, digital and VLSI circuits, microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) and RF and microwave IC’s. These have applications in wireless technologies, security and bio-technologies.


Physical Electronics and Photonics
Fall 2018 Seminar: September 27th

Physical Electronics and Photonics (formally Solid-State Electronics) deals with circuits and devices built from and contained within solid materials. Some examples are microchips, LED and LCD devices. The field covers topics including: semiconductor devices and materials, characterization, photonic/photovoltaic devices, semiconductor processing/intelligent control, nanoelectronics, molecular electronics and transport and computational electronics.


Signal Processing and Communications
Fall 2018 Seminar: October 11th

Signal Processing involves sound, images and sensor data, while Communications provides society with storage such as hard drives and connectivity such as the internet and mobile phones.


Graduate School and the 4+1 Program
Fall 2018 Seminar: October 18th

During their junior year, our undergraduate students in ECEE are required to select four pathway courses out of six different areas. In order to personalize your experience and pursue the path that is of interest to you, our faculty members host seminars each semester to explain the six different pathways, applications and job opportunities within the fields. If you miss one of the seminars, or if you would like to get a head start, we have provided the powerpoint presentations used by the faculty presenters for you to look through. Each presentation is updated after a seminar is held to provide the most current information.


Power Systems
Fall 2018 Seminar: October 25th

Our Electric Power and Energy Systems program is one of the largest in the country with a variety of research expertise, simulation tools and experimental capabilities. The program has three subdivisions in power generation, transmission and distribution and electricity utilization.


What is Senior Design?
Fall 2018 Seminar: November 1st

Senior Design is “finishing school for electrical engineers”. It is the culmination of all your efforts in pursuit of your accredited degree and is designed not only to provide you with the soft skills necessary for you to excel in engineering as a profession but also to maximize your value in the job market. The Pathways Seminar on Senior Design will discuss the content and mechanics of the program to ensure that you are ready to extract maximum benefit from the capstone experience.


Co-Op Educational Program and Internships
Spring 2018 Seminar: January 24

Get the experience you need through ASU Fulton Co-op – Work and Learn
The Co-op program is optional but highly recommended if you want work experience that employers are looking for in new graduates. Cooperative education is a structured method of complimenting classroom education with paid practical work experience. This seminar will also provide information on internships.
