Sleeves Up Teaching wins Christoph Sielmann a Killam Graduate Assistant Teaching Award

Over the last two years, Christoph Sielmann has been one of the Teaching Assistants supporting ECE's capstones, a set of courses for 4th year undergraduates to work on projects proposed by industry. Teaching the capstone teams can be very challenging. The projects combine many aspects of electrical and computer engineering from analog electronics, FPGA implementations, networking software, or the opto-acoustic effect in biological tissues.

Novel biosensor R&D partnership benefits researchers and industry

Professor Cheung and PhD candidate Jonas Flueckiger are working with Lumerical, Mentor Graphics and COMSOL to develop new biosensors. Jonas approach to sensors combines silicon photonics and microfluidics, a technology with broad chemical and biological applications. About his work with Lumerical Jonas says, “I got a lot of experience and knowledge by being in the company. I got feedback, not just about the software but also about my work. At the same time I could actually explain things to the people I worked with. We all benefited from what we learned.”
