Construction and Traffic Update

Section of Southern Avenue to be CLOSED
indefinitely beginning Monday, February 11

As you may have noticed, the pedestrian bridge across Southern Avenue is taking shape. The general contractor, Flintco, has notified us that additional action is now necessary that will affect vehicular traffic on Southern Avenue. Over the next several weeks, crews will be working on the bridge above Southern Avenue and the railroad tracks, welding, pouring concrete, and installing the suspension cables. This work is scheduled to be completed by late March, at which time Southern will reopen.

Beginning next Monday, February 11, Southern Avenue will be closed indefinitely to vehicular traffic between Houston Street and Goodman Street to allow work on the bridge above Southern. Additionally, Echles Street will be closed between Southern and Spottswood. Traffic will be detoured to Patterson, Spottswood, and Goodman. Please note that this schedule could be affected by weather.

Soft Robotics Technology

2-1-2019 @10:00am,

UofM is pleased to welcome Dr. TJ Wallin, a member of the Shepherd Robotics Lab at Cornell and a postdoc at Oculus VR, for a talk on his work in soft robotics technology. Soft robots are capable of mimicking the complex motion of animals. Soft robotic systems are defined by their compliance, which allows for continuous and often responsive localized deformation. These features make soft robots especially interesting for integration with human tissues, for example, the implementation of biomedical devices, and for robotic performance in harsh or uncertain environments, for example, exploration in confined spaces or locomotion on uneven terrain.

Bringing out the Leaders

6th Annual Bringing out the Leaders


Bridging the Gap between college and career by connecting college students with top industry professionals in the Mid-South.

Title Sponsor: Transnetyx


We know the challenges that exist in getting our college students out to network with professionals in the city, as well as acquiring knowledge in their desired fields and careers.

Bringing out the Leaders is an event that is designed to overcome these challenges. Bringing out the Leaders is not intended to be your normal cliché networking and Q&A session with students. They want to create a platform where college students can ask authentic questions and receive valuable insight. They want them to leave this event with real answers and real solutions that they can use the second they leave this event.

Event Details
Date: Thursday, April 11, 2019
Time: 6:00 PM (Doors open at 5:30 PM)

Senior Project Equipment

09-10-2008 @ 5:15pm,

Do you know what you want to do for senior projects but don't have the equipment or money to buy it? I have acquired many items over the years that can be used for EETH and CETH senior projects (see link below).

I also have a number of computers that can be used by students for senior projects in ET227a for your use in case you need software not installed on the image in the computer labs, or you need Linux or another OS.
