Thank you for your interest in attending the 2017 College of Engineering Project Symposium and Showcase. Please register to confirm your attendance at the upcoming event on Friday, June 2, 2017.


Engineering Symposium

More than 400 students will present over 120 projects and exhibits in simultaneous sessions
Time: 7:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
Location: Engineering Buildings 9 & 17

Engineering Showcase

The top undergraduate team projects and exhibits from each of the seven engineering departments will present their efforts to solve multidisciplinary challenges.
Time: 2:00-4:30 p.m.
Location: Cal Poly Pomona, Bronco Student Center, Ursa Major


Hands-On Learning
The Engineering Project Symposium provides an opportunity for students across the college to present their projects for review by faculty, industry representatives, other students, and guests. This is a significant learning experience stressing teamwork, organization, and communication – important elements in an engineering career.

Student Presentations
Presentations showcase the results of individual and team-based efforts to solve multidisciplinary technical challenges. Between 400 and 500 undergraduate and graduate students will present dozens of projects and exhibits in approximately 20 simultaneous sessions. Faculty-mentored projects have been undertaken by students and student teams from our engineering departments: Aerospace, Chemical & Materials, Civil, Electrical & Computer, Industrial & Manufacturing, Mechanical Engineering, and Electromechanical Engineering Technology. Some projects are interdisciplinary, requiring participation by students across the college and the university. Many projects are sponsored and guided by industry. Projects require planning and most often use a research, prototype, test and document strategy. The pedagogical model is greatly enhanced by an opportunity to summarize a project in a public forum.

Showcase of Projects Videos
Teams of undergraduate students representing 7 academic departments present the results of their efforts to solve multi-disciplinary challenges.

2017 IEEE Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits Symposium (RFIC 2017) @ Hawaii Convention Center
Jun 4 – Jun 6 all-day


Submit Your Paper Today!

RFIC2017 Paper Submission

Deadline: 9 January 2017


The premier IEEE conference in the world focused on RFIC technologies invite authors to submit technical papers describing original work and/or advanced practices in the following areas, but not limited to:
  • Millimeter-wave circuits and ICs with focus on 28GHz cellular and 802.11ad/ay WiGig systems
  • Wireless Mobile and Connectivity transceivers for sub-6 GHz 5G, advanced-LTE, and MU-MIMO WiFi
  • Low-power transceivers for IoT and other key new low energy wireless applications
  • RF/Analog front-end and mixed-signal baseband circuits with focus on advancements in full-duplex applications, RF front-end interference cancellation, and high performance ADCs
  • Reconfigurable and tunable front-ends with focus on cognitive radios, advanced connectivity radios, and N-path filter based tunable circuits
  • Power amplifiers and advanced transmitter circuits with focus on high-frequency PAs, higher-class cellular UE PAs,  linearization, and efficiency enhancement
  • RFIC modeling, simulation, testing, process, devices, and packaging technologies

This year in RFIC2017, focus on 5G Technologies:

Jointly with the IMS 5G summit and executive forum held on Monday and Tuesday afternoons (June 5 & 6, 2017), the RFIC2017 Monday morning technical session will be dedicated to original academic and industrial work in future sub-6GHz and 28GHz mobile 5G radios, including 60GHz WiGig connectivity. Consider submitting your paper focused on 5G technologies advancement!


Not to forget that RFIC symposium has a Best Student Paper Award and an Industry Best Paper Award!
RFIC will recognize outstanding technical contributions from academia and industry sources, which will significantly benefit the RFIC community at large. Consider submitting your paper that describes innovation of an integrated circuit or a system application that potentially has the highest impact on RFIC technology and products!

8:45 P.M. – 9:00 P.M. Questions & Answers


Topic: Machine Learning


Speaker: Brad Morantz, Ph.D.,

 IEEE Computer Society Phoenix Chapter


“Machine learning” is a very hot topic. But what does it mean? What is it really? How is it accomplished? How does it affect us? Did we enroll R2D2 in college? This presentation will define machine learning and explain what it means and how it is applied in both the research and the applied practitioner worlds.

This subject has been given as a one or two semester course at various schools and universities. It could be far more than this because of the basic statistics and underlying mathematics. This lecture will cover the basic principles and definitions of the various aspects of machine learning. Explanation of each current type will be discussed. Some methods and example applications will be covered.  Some of the subjects that will be explained are: Data mining, various clustering methods, self organizing maps, model building, decision trees, Bayesian learning, and supervised vs. unsupervised training. These will be explained relative to the definitions given.


About the Speaker
Dr. Morantz has a B.S. in C.I.S. and E.E., a M.S. and Ph.D. in Decision Science, a mixture of mathematical science, psychology, and computer science. He has additional post doctoral course work in Computational BioScience, Computer Science, statistical design methodology, and Design Analysis Simulation Experiments (DASE).  Dr. Morantz has published and presented on neural networks, multiprocessing mathematics, biologically inspired computing architecture, data-mining, and intelligent decision making. His current research is in biologically inspired computing for intelligent decision making. He is currently Sr Staff Scientist for Bluemont Technology & Research, Inc of McLean VA.
