Workshop Overview and Presentations

ECEDHA presented a 1.5-day strategic workshop focused on the future of Electrical and Computer Engineering as a discipline.  The goal was to synthesize and articulate a collective vision of an exciting and attractive future for ECE for the next 50 years that is highly relevant and important to scientific, technological and societal progress. It was our hope that such a vision would attract highly talented diverse students into the field and will also attract resources from government and industry so that the ECE field will continue to flourish. Using an iterative process, workshop participants strived to develop a compelling vision for ECE, branding strategies and a plan for advocacy at the national and international levels.

Two separate groups have been formed to prepare for the next meeting in March - one on Branding (lead by Sheila Hemami) and one on Advocacy (lead by George Pappas). The organizing committee has also recommended to the ECEDHA Board of Directors that they establish an Education and Diversity initiative that could complement the Vision, Branding, and Advocacy effort.

We still have a lot of work to do, and are beginning with the three main action items that will be discussed in greater detail in March at the 2016 Annual Conference in La Jolla. We plan to post more information as it is developed.
