As Purdue faculty, staff, and students adjust to remote working, teaching, and learning, ECE alumnus Christopher Svec led a virtual talk to give tips and advice based on his experience. More than 100 students participated in the virtual talk, which took place via Zoom. Svec (BSEE ’99, MSECE ’02) is currently a software engineering manager at iRobot and leads the embedded software team for the Roomba vacuuming and mopping robots. He has been with iRobot for 15 years, and has worked remotely for the last five.
