2024 ECE Undergraduate Student Awards

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering celebrated electrical and computer engineering students with its annual Undergraduate Awards Ceremony on June 7.

Outstanding Senior Spotlight: Noah Wagner

After taking an AP physics course in high school, Noah Wagner was inspired to pursue electrical engineering. It is no surprise, then, that Wagner has created a body of work at the University of California, Davis, with a strong gravitational pull.

Outstanding Senior Spotlight: Jackson Vaughn

During his time as a computer engineering student, Jackson Vaughn relished the opportunity to study under world-class professors who encouraged students to ask questions and engage with their curriculum.

The Nexus of Learnings

Regardless of their senior design project focus–whether it was on plants, self-driving cars, robots or flying cows–this year’s group of electrical and computer engineering seniors said perseverance, problem solving, project management skills and teamwork were the most valuable takeaways they experienced as part of this year’s senior design projects.

Enabling Student Success in ECE Courses During the COVID-19 Pandemic

By Jocelyn Park

At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and in response to California’s social distancing guidelines, the UC Davis Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) had less than two weeks to make an abrupt transition from in-person instruction to remote instruction. This shift to virtual instruction came with numerous challenges, especially in laboratory-based courses.

Generous Support from Texas Instruments for Undergraduate Labs during the Pandemic

Texas Instruments (TI) has continued to provide generous support of the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department’s undergraduate teaching labs during the pandemic. This has been especially helpful during the ramp-up of high-quality, hands-on, remote lab instruction. “Texas Instruments supports the engaging learning experience created at UC Davis, especially in this time where remote learning is so critical,” said ChengNing Wang, director of university marketing at Texas Instruments.
