Spotlights in Electrical & Computer Engineering

"My work bridges the gap between theory and real-world applications. I believe very strongly that and it is part of my core philosophy that there is research in how to take things out of the lab and into practice. We do a lot of work developing algorithms, developing software in the lab, but it is always implemented on actual robotic platforms (e.g., drones, rovers, satellites) in the field." -Dr. Mehmet Kurum

Dr. Mehmet Kurum specializes in electromagnetics, remote sensing, and develompent in radio frequency research. Dr. Kurum joined the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering this August 2023.

This June 2023, Animesh Paul received the ASEE 2023 National Conference Paper Award in the Division for Experimentation and Laboratory-Oriented Studies for his publication on “Exploring Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Remote Laboratories.” Animesh just completed his first year as a Ph.D. student under the direction of Dr. Racheida Lewis in the DREAM Lab at the University of Georgia, which focuses on Diversity, Retention, Equity, Access, and Matriculation patterns within engineering.

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.”
