Welcome to the AETC Seminar webpage. Here you will find abstracts of all seminar starting with the very recent semesters. We do not keep seminar record for more than 5-6 years.
These seminars are about the novel research done by current and past students of AETC. If you find a particular topic of interest, then just click on its name to get more information about it. Keep checking back often to get details of new topics that are going to be presented in the current semester.
From Spring-2013 AETC seminar was extended to be the ECE Dept. graduate seminar. This will allow larger number of graduate students to attend. We will continue to keep record of these seminars on the AETC website.
** We have video recorded of the seminar. For downloading the video: right click on video, select save link as/save target as and save it.
