ECE Host the 18th Annual Senior Banquet

The ECE Department Celebrates at the ECE Senior Banquet

2013 ECE Award Winners!

The Electrical and Computer Engineering Department hosted the 18th Annual ECE Senior Banquet at Maxwell Silverman’s Toolhouse restaurant in Worcester, MA on April 25, 2013. Traditionally the senior banquet is held on CDR (Completion of Degree Requirement Deadline) Day. Faculty and students are encouraged to come dressed in their favorite Hawaiian shirt.

The ECE Faculty and students celebrated the evening with dinner, dancing and awards. The evening started at 6:00pm with friends arriving to Maxwell Silverman’s to appetizers and drinks, followed by professional ballroom dancers. Some of the ECE students joined in with their own rehearsed dance that was prepared from the ECE Spark Party.

After dinner, Professor McNeill hosted the evening by presenting awards from IEEE, HKN, and Provost MQP. The ECE faculty presented the Harold S. Black award to Kaung Myat Win, who demonstrated outstanding creativity and enthusiasm in engineering problem solving, practical implementation of design, and exemplary character in contributions to the welfare of the WPI community.
Congratulations to all the ECE students and faculty who have been honored for their hard work.
