PCB Development/Soldering Workshop – Oct 22

30 09 2010

Have you ever wanted to take the knowledge you have learned from your curriculum a step further?  Such as professionally designing motherboards, single board computers (SBCs), or any other professionally made printed circuit board (PCB) that can greatly improve the efficiency and appearance of your potential senior design?  If so, the UWF IEEE Pensacola will be hosting a PCB development/soldering workshop.  The workshop will be held at the SSE on October 22th, 10:00am.  There will be a presentation on designing a PCB and matching schematic.  In addition, students will take the next step by actively learning to solder, and solder a selected circuit design.

These skills are essential for engineering Senior Design, Unmanned Systems, and not to mention for your career! Even if you are a Physicist or Computer Scientist, you will be surprised how helpful these skills can be on the job. Pizza and refreshments will be served after the workshop.

If interested, please RSVP David White (dmw18@students.uwf.edu) by October 6th.

Joint NWF/UWF IEEE Meeting, Apr 19, 6pm

8 04 2010

On behalf of David Michael White, UWF IEEE Chairman:

Event: Joint NWF/UWF IEEE Meeting
Location: SSE auditorium
Date & Time: Apr 19, 6-8pm

The meeting will last approximately 30 minutes followed by a tour of the SSE building. We will be going through the Holodeck, Unmanned Systems Lab, and Laser Lab.

The purpose of this event is to bring awareness of the SSE department to some of the professionals from local engineering companies who will be present at this event. This may also provide a great opportunity for networking.

Free food will be provided.

After the short initial meeting, the tour will begin. However, in order to prevent crowding during the tour, the guests from engineering companies will be in a group to themselves, and will have first priority over the facilities in the order of the Holodeck, the Unmanned Systems Lab, and then the Laser Lab. Anyone else who wishes to tour the building will have access to the facilities that are not occupied by the guests from the engineering companies.
