Seminar Series

2017 Fall Seminar Series

Seminars are held on Tuesday at 2:00 pm in Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) room 118.
Topical seminars are scheduled throughout the semester and can be used for seminar credit.

Full time, onsite students are required to attend every seminar that is scheduled. The seminars are posted on the department website (, which students should consult regularly. The number of seminars each semester is typically in the 10 - 12 range. If a seminar is missed, advance notification must be provided to Elaine Finke (, who compiles the final grade for the class based on number of seminars attended, and can be made up by either attending a seminar in a related field in another department or getting credit for participation in a conference or workshop.

Offsite students at the national labs or part-time students holding full time jobs are required to attend 8 seminars.
