2023 Recognition Night honors award winners
The highlight of Recognition Night is the presentation of EEE's Senior Design Projects to faculty, corporate representatives, students, and family members. EEE's Senior Design Projects enable students to address real-world challenges under the guidance of real clients. These team-based, experiential learning projects provide students with the professional development experience of a technical internship while sponsors gain exposure and an innovative solution to a problem within their organization.
