Electrical and Computer Engineering

ECE Outreach Program at Purdue Unversity Fort Wayne

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Purdue Unversity Fort Wayne has initiated an outreach program to help K-12 students and their teachers to explore Electrical and Computer Engineering fields. This program is designed to address the issue of the shrinking number of students going into STEM fields and tries to increase the number of women and minorities in ECE fields.

Dr. Wang is the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department Outreach Program Coordinator. Dr. Wang, and engineering student volunteers will visit schools in Great Fort Wayne areas to engage with young students by teaching them how to build real world electrical and computer engineering science projects. K-12 students are also invited to have a campus visit, sense the college engineering lab environments, and experience cutting-edge technology stationed in your neighborhood conveniently at Purdue Unversity Fort Wayne.     

The ECE Department plans to host and sponsor competition projects among great Fort Wayne area high schools.

Classroom Visits

Dr. Wang, his outreach student group, and ECE faculty are available to visit greater Fort Wayne area schools to lead the projects described above. Interested school teachers for second grade and up may email the ECE Outreach program coordinator Dr. Wang, wang@pfw.edu , or ECE Department Chair Dr. Eroglu, eroglua@pfw.edu,  for more information.


Please send feedback to wang@pfw.edu.
