ECE/ECEGSA Research Day

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and ECEGSA (ECE Graduate Student Association) hosted a Research Day on January 24th, 2024! The event was a graduate student-led effort organized by ECEGSA to showcase the research of ECE graduate students through poster sessions and lightning talks. 

The Research Day created an opportunity for students to show their research and creativity and encouraged communication and collaboration in the ECE community. Faculty, students, and staff were able to listen, observe and interact with the many areas of research occurring within the department.

An alumni panel was organized to share “Life After Graduation.” ECE MASc and PhD alumni were invited to share their advice and experience about career development. The alumni panel discussed various topics regarding which skills students should be developing in graduate school, how to consider career options and more. This panel was an interactive opportunity for the audience to ask questions and hear advice.

“The ECE research day provided an amazing opportunity for students to connect, share updates, and gain insights into each other’s research. In addition, presenting my research at this event was a valuable opportunity for me to improve my presentation skills.” -Mani, Masters student

“I found ECE Research Day to be an excellent opportunity to learn about the diversity of research projects conducted in the department, in fields beyond my own research area. Through engaging talks and poster sessions, I was able to exchange research experiences with other graduate students and network with ECE grad alumni.” – Abraham, PhD student

Following the poster and talk sessions, an award ceremony took place, where participants were ranked in various areas.
