Engineering Week 2014


Hello Everyone!

As you can see, February 16 – 22 is w1601402_350598848413012_700819294_nhat we know as E-Week! This is the time to explore the young minds of tomorrow and share your latest projects with the Engineering world. For that we say we will be having schools from all over the Rio Grande Valley come and visit what we have in the College of Engineering. If you have any questions on whether you’d like to share some ideas or projects or even help, please don’t hesitate to let us know. We will gladly respond to any of your inquiries.

So does anybody have anything to show, We may be setting booths just for YOU!!! Be part of the annual Engineering Week with IEEE. Thanks, and may your journeys go… you know the rest!!!

For our UTPA IEEE members:

Friday, February 21 & Saturday February 22, IEEE will be helping out with E-WeeK. We will be receiving groups of approximately 30 students and we will have for them  a hands on activity, so we need volunteers to make sure the students enjoy a full Engineering environment!!


Friday [8:55am - 1:35pm] & Saturday [8:30am - 11:20am]
You don’t have to stay the entire time you can stop by and help just for an hour we would really appreciate your help!

We will be meeting both Friday and Saturday at 8am in the Micro. Lab [NEXT TO THE DIGITAL ROOM] to get everything ready and to go over what the hands on activity will be.

PES Seminar

The PES Seminar has been postponed until Saturday, March 29th.

We will keep you posted with any more changes.

This is a 3-hour seminar on synchophasor networks.  For the uninitiated, this refers to that box in the Micro Lab.  It allows long distance measuring of the phase difference between voltage sources.  So, it can tell the phase difference between here and some source in Dallas for example.  This is actually pretty interesting stuff and essential to maintaining the grid.  The speaker also is an expert in renewable energy.

PES wants us to register for the event before attending, which you can do by continuing to the following website, http://www.ieee-rgv.org/. Although, traditionally, there has never been a problem with walk-ins.
