In response to coronavirus and to help minimize its spread, many UCF events are being canceled.

If you have questions about what’s still open around campus, please check out this regularly updated guide.

Friday, July 24, 2020 noon to 1 p.m.

The UCF College of Engineering and Computer Science's Zoom-cast series is live-streamed every Friday, 12 p.m. to 1 p.m., offering four 10-minute talks by CECS faculty and a live-chat Q&A. 

Targeted to faculty, scientists and potential industry and government partners, all are invited to Zoom-in and hear presentations by UCF’s engineering and computer science faculty who explain their cutting-edge, pioneering research endeavors in quick, 10-minute snapshots. 

These talks provide an opportunity to get to know — and collaborate with — our faculty who are advancing innovations in all areas of engineering and computer science, including smart city technology, aerospace, energy, modeling and simulation, medicine, advanced materials, cyber security, and more. Each faculty presenter will narrate as they share illustrative slides.

Moderated by Subith Vasu, Ph.D., UCF Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, viewers can submit questions in real-time and express interest in collaborating. 

The July 24, 2020 faculty presenter lineup:

  • Robert Steward Jr., Ph.D., Dept. of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering: "Biomechanical Mechanisms That Govern Cellular Behavior"
  • Sharma Thankachan, Ph.D., Dept. of Computer Science: "Theoretical Foundations of Compression, Indexing, and Processing of (String) Data"
  • Richard Ewetz, Ph.D., Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering: "Secure and Efficient Computing in the Post-Moore Era"
  • Steve Duranceau, P.E., Ph.D., Dept. of Civil, Environmental and Construction Engineering: "328,239,523 Reasons to Research Drinking Water"
