Hi everyone! My name is Helen Zhu and I'm in 4th/5th year Electrical and Biomedical Engineering.  I'm looking forward to being the VP Communications for ECES this year!

This will be my last year of undergrad and I'm very excited to be on ECES.

Hello there! My name is Dziugas Nausedas. I'm in my fourth year of Electrical Engineering & Society, and the MES Representative for the ECES. That means it's my job to represent and advocate for all ECES students in any way I can. So if you ever have concerns about something that is going on in your class/program in general, I'd love to hear about it so that we might possibly work to actively address your concerns. Also I love biking, cooking, and listening to new music, so I'd love to chat about any of those or anything else!

The ECE Industry night is an opportunity for students to make company connections, where we feature booths, presentations, and speed networking events for employers and students to participate in. In the past, we have had several employers attend, including Synopsys, Evertz, Qualcomm, Rogers, and Adlib Software.  I look forward to meeting all of you at our events this year!
