IEEE WIE Matlab/Simulink Tutorial Workshop
The IEEE Women-in-Engineering student officers organized a Matlab/Simulink workshop via Zoom on April 22, Thursday from 3:00 to 4:00pm. The purpose of this workshop was to provide entry-level introduction to the use of Matlab/Simulink. Mr. Yu Hu, a doctoral student in EECS department, presented the Matlab/Simulink tutorial to about 20 student attendees. A certificate of appreciation, prepared by faculty advisor Dr. Lili Dong and the president of WIE Ms. Grace Quaintance, was given to Mr. Yu Hu to recognize his dedication to student training and success.
HKN Virtual Induction Ceremony
On April 16, 2021, HKN student officers and faculty advisor successfully inducted 17 new members for the Epsilon Alpha chapter of HKN at CSU. For the first time in the history of EECS department, the induction ceremony was held virtually via Zoom. The inductees and their family and friends attended the virtual event. The ceremony would not be possible without the dedication and hard work of the student officers (Aaron Teeters, Anusree Mandali, Shubo Zhang and Yu Hu) and supporting staff members (Lydia I Demjanczuk and Patricia Drake).
Soft Robotics Seminar
On Mar. 12, 2021, Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) honor society, IEEE-Women-in-Engineering student organization, and IEEE Control Systems Society (Cleveland Chapter) jointly organized a webinar via Zoom. Dr. Lili Dong invited Dr. Timothy Morrissey, the CEO for Artimus Robotics Inc., to give a presentation “Artimus Robotics: Commercializing Soft Robotics Actuators” in the webinar. In the presentation, Dr. Morrissey discussed about the motivation for soft robotics; origins of Artimus Robotics breakthrough technology, HASEL artificial muscles; fundamentals of HASEL action technology; technical challenges in commercializing a bleeding-edge technology; and outlook for the soft robotic future. The seminar was well received by about 60 attendees including the faculty members and students from CSU, Case Western Reserve University, and University of Akron, and local industrial engineers. The event would not be successful without the contributions of HKN and WIE officers (Aaron Teeters, Anusree Mandali, Shubo Zhang, Yu Hu, Grace Quaintance, and Diana Valle).
