10th Annual Research Festival

2019 marks the 10th anniversary of the Ming Hsieh ECE department’s annual research festival. We have done a lot in the last decade: from enabling major research breakthroughs and new interdisciplinary initiatives to welcoming transformative faculty and celebrating numerous awards and honors. At this year’s festival, we’ll be celebrating a decade of accomplishments while looking to the next decade ahead of us. We’d love for you to join us at this milestone event.


The annual research festival is the ECE department’s largest and most important event of the year. Over 100 of our PhD students, representing every research area in the discipline, come together to share their original research with peers, faculty, alumni, and industry leaders. It provides our students with invaluable experience presenting their work in front of a diverse audience and an opportunity to open new dialog for advancing research. More importantly, it brings our best student researchers together with academic and industry leaders for the purpose of future R&D collaboration and cooperation.  Please join us on November 8th, 2019 to see how far we’ve come, and how much further we can go.


We’ll be updating this page with more information as we get closer to the event. For now, you can see some numbers, pictures, and information from last year’s event below.
