Early Internships are a Bridge to Employment
Megan Dague doesn’t graduate until spring 2019, but she already knows where she will be working after graduation. The Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) senior is set to work as a hardware engineer at Northrop Grumman Corporation, an American global aerospace and defense technology company based in Virginia.
COE Students Take on Real-World Challenges from Corporate Sponsors
Every year, graduating students participate in the Engineering Senior Design Expo to show off their talents and engineering knowledge. For more ambitious students who want to take on a bigger challenge, the college offers the Interdisciplinary Product Design (IPD) program.
Engineering Students Win $10K Prize at Hackathon
A team of UIC engineering students from ECE and CS – along with a BioEngineering alumna – won the recent BuiltWorlds 2018 Hackathon, which included a $10,000 prize, at the Salt Flats’ West Loop innovation house. The two-day event kicked off on Friday evening as participants heard from both industry professionals and fellow hackers who described potential problems teams could tackle throughout the weekend.
PhD Student Helps Team Win Second Place at “Intelligent Water Systems Challenge’
John Mulrow, a PhD candidate in the Department of Civil and Materials Engineering (CME), partnered with a team of scientists from the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRDGC), a professor from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and professionals from Ensaras, Inc., to win second place at the inaugural “LIFT Intelligent Water Systems Challenge.”


UIC Researchers Develop Method to Detect ALS
Lou Gehrig’s disease, a progressive neurodegenerative disease also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), is estimated to affect more than 20,000 Americans, according to the ALS Association.
UIC’s first female engineering graduate will be honored this commencement weekend
Nancy Holmes doesn't think her life story is a page turner. That makes it even more remarkable. "It's just strange that people get excited, that they think I have done something," she said. In 1968 the Oak Park resident became the first woman to earn a bachelor's degree in engineering from the University of Illinois at Chicago. "There were 13 of us. Twelve guys and me," she recalled.
Professor Seferoglu Awarded Five Grants Totaling More Than $1.3M
ECE Professor Hulya Seferoglu is on a roll! The prolific researcher was awarded five grants in the recent months for a total of more than $1.3 million in research funding. The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) professor has received awards from the National Science Foundation, Army Research Lab, Army Research Office, National Institute of Standards and Technology and an industry grant. She is UIC’s principal investigator (PI) for four of these five awards. Each grant is for a different research project, but they all have a common thread – Edge computing.
