CETA Hosts the American Society of Engineering Education Northeast Section Annual Conference April 27-28, 2018

CETA students had the chance to showcase their projects and research to engineering educators throughout the Northeast during the 2018 Northeast section of the American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE-NE) Conference. The event was held on campus April 27-28. ASEE-NE is the region’s primary organization for engineering education. This year’s theme, “Leadership and Entrepreneurship,” drew on taking an innovative approach to solving engineering problems. Over 350 engineers, faculty, and students attended.

Throughout the conference, students received expert feedback on their projects and research. First, second, and third place was awarded for undergraduate and graduate poster and paper presentations. University of Hartford students Constance Wall '18, Rashed Ay abbas '19, Hawraa Aldouri '19 took first place in the undergraduate poster category for their "Smart Hard Hat", an idea developed under the direction of Takafumi Asaki, assistant professor of biomedical engineering.

“We are honored to have been selected as the conference host,” says Dean Lou Manzione. “This is an ideal opportunity for students to present their research and be recognized for their work, and to interact with engineering educators.”

A number of CETA faculty presented on topics for educators ranging from “Incorporation of Computerized Applied Learning Environments”, to “Creating Video Demonstrations of Acoustics Principles to Facilitate Learning”.

Diagnostics Devices, Inc. served as conference sponsor. Jeffrey S. Katz, senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and a member of the IBM Academy of Technology, delivered a keynote address titled ‘IBM Cognitive Computing.’

“Engineering education, in all of its many forms, was on display at this conference, ” says Saeid Moslehpour, assistant dean of graduate engineering programs and event associate chair. Learn more about the ASEE Northeast Section.
