Viswanath Sankar will defend his dissertation, entitled “Investigation and Mitigation of Abiotic Factors Affecting Reliability of Microelectrode Arrays in Chronic Neural Implants” at 9:30 am on Monday, July 15th in LAR 234. Refreshments will be provided.
This Friday at 11:15 AM, we have an introductory workshop on AutoCAD, Solidworks and UF Apps by the IMG Tech Committee. The primary focus of the workshop will be on UF Apps, while AutoCAD and Solidworks will be used as demo examples.
UF Apps is a software licensing system which provides convenient access to softwares like MS Office, MATLAB, AutoCAD, SolidWorks and a few others. It is free for UF Gators. You can read more about it at http://info.apps.ufl.edu/.
Prospective attendees are encouraged to download and install the Citrix receiver necessary for accessing the available softwares. Remember to bring your laptops to the workshop if possible. The last fifteen minutes will be reserved for questions and laptop specific problems.
N.B.: The regular venue for the IMG Seminar series - LAR234 - is unavailable this Friday. The venue for the workshop is LAR310.
Amit Gupta will defend his dissertation, entitled “Investigation of Electrical Bias, Mechanical Stress, Temperature and Ambient Effect on AlGaN/GaN HEMT Time-Dependent Degradation” at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 3rd in NEB 409. Refreshments will be provided.
Aneesh Koka will defend his dissertation proposal, entitled "Dynamic Response Analysis of Piezoelectric Nanowire base Nanoelectromechanical Systems" at 10:00am on Wednesday, July 3rd in LAR 234. Refreshments will be provided.
This Friday at 11:30 AM, Vishwanath Sankar will give a practice talk for his dissertation defense.
