The Ritchie School of Engineering & Computer Science was overjoyed to celebrate virtually with our graduating students on June 12. Faculty, staff, and family members gathered together to honor the achievements of the class of 2020.
In addition to honoring all of the graduating students, the Ritchie School also recognized several students with awards from the school and different departments for work that went above and beyond during their academic career.
Electrical and computer engineering professor Mohammad Mahoor and PhD student Behzad Hasani introduce us to AffectNet, a facial expression recognition database. Their paper on AffectNet won the 2019 IEEE Transactions in Affective Computing Award for most influential paper.
This fall Dr. Peter Laz’s course Design Thinking in the Community tasked Engineering students with becoming problem solvers. Merging design thinking, human centered design, and engineering design concepts with community service and outreach, his students created programs and projects that solve real-world problems.
