Spotlights in Electrical & Computer Engineering
"My primary focus lies in the domains of power system analysis and power electronics systems. In today's rapidly advancing technological landscape, power stands as the cornerstone. Ensuring a consistent and reliable electricity supply has never been more crucial. With the push towards ambitious carbon reduction targets, we're seeing an accelerated integration of renewable energy sources into established power systems. This evolution is catalyzing transformative shifts in the power industry, profoundly influencing the control and management of power systems. It's this dynamic and impactful landscape that drives my passion and commitment to these areas." -Tianqi Hong

Twenty-four high school students attended the B.L.A.C.K. in Engineering Summer Academy Camp offered by the College of Engineering at UGA this past June. The Building Leaders through Analysis, Conceptualization, and Knowledge (B.L.A.C.K.) in Engineering summer academy camp focus is to expand young adults’ experiences in engineering through critical thinking and teamwork with a specialty in electrical and computer engineering. This is the second year of the B.L.A.C.K. Engineering Summer Academy camp with generous funds donated the NCR Foundation of the NCR Corporation in Atlanta, GA.
“…the highlight for me was seeing the joy from the students when they finally figured something out. Some managed to do some really creative things and they were very inquisitive about how what they learned this week could translate into an engineering major.”
