WKU Electrical Engineering Stories

WKU faced steep competition at the IEEE

Southeastcon 2011

March 23, 2011

Electrical engineering students returned to the 2011 IEEE Southeastcon to defend their title in the Hardware Competition in Nashville, TN.

Competition Parameters

In consideration of recent natural disasters, particularly tsunamis and earthquakes, IEEE decided that this year's competition would focus on the use of modern technology to assist emergency responders with accurate and timely information to ensure the survival of as many victims as possible. Teams created emergency response robots which were designed to evaluate the scene and relay important information to response teams.
