Institutions with a Focus on Undergraduate Education

Monday, March 16
1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

This session focuses on some discussions regarding issues in undergraduate institutions that offer undergraduate degrees in electrical engineering, computer engineering, and computer science.  The floor will be open to everyone to ask questions, to suggest solutions, and to share ideas with others.  So come join us to share your experience and learn from best practices to maintain an educational environment in your institution that is conducive to faculty members as well as to students learning.
