City's Electrical & Electronic Engineering students take centre stage
Sajith Bakeerathan, a Third Year BEng (Biomedical Engineering) student, is the First Prize winner in the 2014 Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering poster competition, held on 10th April outside the Oliver Thompson Lecture Theatre (OTLT). His poster was titled 'Using Infrared to Detect Fatigue in Drivers'.
The annual event is organised for all 3rd and 4th Year students across the Department. Students submit posters based on their individual projects and their lecturers vote for the ten best posters which are then displayed outside the OTLT.
All undergraduate students in the Department then vote for their favourite poster. The competition was organised with the assistance of engineering student group, Tech Legacy.
With the poster 'Zigbee-Based Communication System Design for Home Automation', Jiaxuan Guo, a Third Year BEng (Engineering with Management & Entrepreneurship) student, won Second Prize.
The Third prize went to Pegah Monem, a Third Year BEng (Biomedical Engineering) student, with a poster entitled 'Electroencophelegram Based on Brain Computer Interface for 1D Movement of the Cursor".
The three winners carried away Amazon vouchers valued at £100, £50 and £30, respectively.
Senior Lecturer in Electrical & Electronic Engineering, Dr Veselin Rakocevic, is pleased with the standard of the work displayed by students.
"The standard of posters submitted for the competition was quite high this year. We have seen a year on year increase in the quality of work produced by the students in the Department and this in turn, is an excellent reflection of the quality of engineers produced by City."
