EE Awards 2013

Electrical Engineering graduate students present research, win cash prizes

Graduate students in the UNL Department of Electrical Engineering entered their research posters in UNL’s Spring 2013 Research Fair on April 10: to share their work and potentially earn recognition as judges from their department toured the event. Honors were awarded to research projects at the Electrical Engineering Department’s annual banquet, later that week. Thanks to all participants and congratulations to the winners, including:
