Imagine if there was a way to drastically improve your physical therapy exercises, or foot alignment with the floor. This concept of reducing the error of measurements is what excites Gustavo Vejerano, Ph.D., assistant professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Partnering with students, Vejerano studies motion capture through intelligent and embedded networks and systems. To learn more about his research into muscle movement, watch this informative video.
At freshmen orientation 2016, incoming students got a taste of some of the research topics that fuel Seaver faculty members. Dubbed the “First Lecture Series,” faculty members from different disciplines spoke about why they love their field, what topics of research intrigue them, and what types of projects they are working on.
Why is research important to students? Research is a staple of the Seaver student experience. It helps students grow as scholars and as individuals. From the moment they are accepted to the university, students are encouraged to participate in research.
