The first-ever alumni networking event in Chicago took place July 1, 2015, and approx. 35 local alumni met up with an additional 20 alumni, faculty and students who were in Chicago attending the 2015 American Control Conference (ACC). The ACC is one of the world’s premier scientific and engineering conferences dedicated to the advancement of control theory and practice. This year’s conference included STEM workshops for high school students, and ECE staff were on hand to talk with the students.

Attendees had a great time meeting up with other alumni in the area, as well as getting some insights into the department from Khalil Najafi, Schlumberger Professor and ECE Chair, and hearing about the world famous robotic research of Jessy Grizzle, Elmer G. Gilbert Distinguished University Professor and Jerry W. and Carol L. Levin Professor of Engineering.
