ECEDHA Announces ECE Lab Pros Network Summit in December 2020
A virtual conference for ECE Lab Professionals focusing on ECE Labs, Robotics and Makers
CHICAGO, Illinois - ECEDHA, (the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department Heads
Association) announced today plans to hold its first ECE Lab Pros Network Summit, a virtual
conference for the professionals who manage electrical and computer engineering labs at leading
universities across the United States and Canada.
The ECE Lab Pros Summit takes place December 1-2, 2020, consisting of two half-day programs
covering ECE Labs, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Robotics and Makers topics. The
timely importance of the Summit addresses, among other topics, online engagement of ECE Labs
with a deep dive into experiences before and after COVID-19.
The ECE Lab Pros Network Summit stems from the ECE Lab Pros Working Group. The ECE Lab
Pros Working Group has gathered at past ECEDHA Annual Conferences for technology demos
and dedicated programming. Members are made up of Lab Pros from Arizona State, Baylor,
Bucknell, Drexel, Georgia Tech, Iowa State, Rowan, UC Davis, UC San Diego, University of
Illinois, University of New Mexico, University of Pennsylvania, and more.
ECEDHA is a non-profit organization composed of 250 departments heads or chairs at institutions
offering accredited programs in electrical and/or computer engineering.
“We’ve developed the ECE Lab Pros Network Summit as a means of bringing this community of
academics together to engage in group discussions and learn from one another as they share
their challenges and triumphs,” said John Janowiak, executive director of ECEDHA. “The
dedication and support from the ECE lab pros community has been overwhelming, as shown via
participation in our monthly virtual meetings.”
“As ECE departments go through continuous transformation, on-line labs and lab program
upgrades continue to be an integral part of the process. Conversations with fellow colleagues are
immensely valuable as we navigate student outcomes, through collaboration,” said Sid Deliwala,
Director of Lab Programs, University of Pennsylvania and Chairman of the ECE Lab Pros Network
