Gannon University Hosts Electrical and Computer Engineering Day

Posted: April 29, 2013

The Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) department at Gannon University is hosting ECE Day on April 30, 2013. ECE Day features project activities for high school students in electronic circuits, wireless communication, wind power-based electricity generation and embedded system design. During ECE Day, the students will engage in hands-on laboratory activities to understand engineering principles and design practices.

Currently, about 70 students from local Erie high schools are expected to participate. The coordination is through the Erie County Technical School, where these students are enrolled in various special classes provided by IU5 and other schools. In these classes, students focus on engineering subjects such as drafting, electronics, and computers.
