Department Seminar - Computer Engineering: Applications, Innovations, and Contemporary Issues

9/17 Wednesday 3pm
235 Weir Hall
Speaker: Dr. Matthew Morrison
Title: Computer Engineering: Applications, Innovations, and COntemporary Issues
Abstract: Dr. Matthew Morrison is a newly-hired professor in the Electrical Engineering Department, and his job is to lead the development of the new Computer Engineering emphasis within Electrical Engineering. Since Computer Engineers apply computational methods to formulate and solve complex mathematical problems in engineering and the physical and the social sciences, it is very important for Computer Scientists and Computer Engineers to work together to achieve these goals. Dr. Morrison will discuss the fundamentals of Computer Engineer, recent innovations, and contemporary issues that require collaboration between Computer Scientists and Computer Engineers.
