On the rise with IrishSat

The first high-altitude balloon launched by IrishSat, a student-run satellite development group, rose about 115,000 feet in the air — until the balloon burst and the payload drifted safely to the ground on a parachute.

Spotlight on Research in Electrical Engineering

Making the Modern World Possible: Wireless Communications and Sensing

Prof. Jonathan Chisum didn’t always know he wanted to be an electrical engineer, but he has always been interested in physical principles and mathematics.

“Then once I discovered that the people who harness those laws to do interesting things and solve problems — those are electrical engineers.”

“Then I started to realize, this is where the action is. This is where I want to be!”
