CE Junior Seminar
Presentations from faculty and industry representatives to discuss trends
in computer engineering, professionalism, ethics, the impact of engineering
in global and societal contexts, lifelong learning, and contemporary issues.
Instructor: Dr. Chris Myers
CE major status
Since the goal of this class is to learn about the computer engineering
discipline by listening to invited speakers, it is crucial that you attend
the seminars. In order to receive full credit for attendence, you must
attend at least 14 of the 15 seminars.
Also, since it is rude to the speakers to arrive late or leave early, you
will lose half of the credit for the day if you do so.
During this course, you will select one presentation that was particularly
interesting to you. You will then read more papers on the subject of this
talk and write a detailed report. You may want to contact the speaker to
get some ideas about which papers to read. A draft is due in-class on
November 25st (IMPORTANT: NO LATE WORK WILL BE ACCEPTED). You will receive
feedback on this draft on December 2nd. You will then be required to
turn in the final version in-class on December 9th (AGAIN, NO LATE WORK
WILL BE ACCEPTED).
Your final report should be 4 pages single-spaced and double-column using
the IEEE transactions format described
here. This page includes both LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates that you
For your initial draft, please turn in both a version in this format and
another single-column and double-spaced to make it easier to make corrections
on the document.
Technical Writing Course
If you have not already taken technical writing, it is strongly encouraged
that you do so this semester. This will help not only this course but also
your project proposal course (CS/ECE 3992) and senior project course
which are coming up in the next two semesters. We also strongly recommend
that you take Scientific Writing (WRTG 3014) rather than Professional
Writing (WRTG 3015) as this will be more useful to you for these courses.
You can receive extra credit by attending another seminar (with prior approval)
such as an
ECE or SoC distinguished lecture and writing a one page summary of the talk.
You cannot though receive credit for more than two such seminars.
