EE 428 Robotics Fundamentals
EE 456 Digital Image Processing
EE 490/590 Phase Array Antenna Design
Multiple antennas and then into fabrication and error analysis and system
performance. Good course after introduction antenna courses. Should
incorporate new antenna lab/experiment
EE 490/590 Engineering Computations.
Optimization with numerical methods. More programming elements with this
EE 490/590 Engineering Systems Reliability
Have to build reliability into the design. Usually not taught in university.
EE 508 Intelligent Decision Systems.
Artiﬁcial intelligent with fuzzy logic and other methods. Class similar to computer
science. Hands on class not to much theory. Programming involved.
More channel scopes. Nice to get 4 channel scopes
High frequency signal generator
Dual monitor in student lounge.
How to purchase equipment is a lot of paperwork and policy.
Have prospective students meet with graduate students and see the labs. Along
with faculty Get better communication with students about visits.

May 6Spring Picnic
Our spring picnic this year was a great success. Not only do we now have a new grill to do all of the cooking needs that we require but we had a fantastic turnout even though the weather wasn’t the best. The food and cake purchased beforehand wasn’t enough to keep up with all the people who turned up so there was another trip made for extra supplies. There was the usual game of wiffle ball for a while and there was a kickball floating around, along with a frisbee and football for people to play catch with. Just about everyone participated in some sort of activity. All in all it was a good time and thanks to everyone who showed up hope to see you there next year.
