Innovating Freshman Education
Energizes Students and Faculty
WeвЂ™re making our undergraduate experience the best in the world. Engineering educators collaborating on a grant from the Strategic Instructional Innovations Program (SIIP) are now reimagining ECE 110 (basic circuits) for the nearly 500 students who take this class each year.
“I know for a fact that everything I’ve done has had its foundation back here at Illinois. So I feel a moral obligation, a personal obligation, a professional obligation to want to go back and appreciate everything IвЂ™ve had a chance to do, and to help do anything I can to make sure that groundwork stays firm for the next generation of engineers that come out of Illinois. I want to give back because I know everything started here.”
