ECE Student team wins First Place in IEEE Region 6 Southern Area Contest held on
May 7, 2011
Please join me in congratulating our outstanding ECE student team of Matthew Keyawa, Alex Darejeh, and Ivan Ivakhniouk who won first place in the IEEE Region 6 Southern Area Student Paper contest held at Long Beach on May 7, 2011. Their paper is entitled "Design of a High Frequency Software Defined Radio Transceiver: Linux Embedded System Installation and HF Power Amplifier Protection and Control". This paper is based on their group senior design project which was performed under the supervision of Professors James Flynn, David Schwartz and Sharlene Katz from the ECE department.
By virtue of this performance Matt, Alex, and Ivan have won the right to represent the Southern Area at the Regional competition which will be held in August where they will go head to head with the winners from the other four areas. IEEE Region 6 covers the ten western states with over 50,000 members including approximately 6,200 student members.
Great job team! We are really proud of your achievement and wish you the very best for the Regional competition in August!
