美国奥本大学(Auburn University) Prof. Shiwen Mao 将在本周三（7月5日）上午访问我院，并于9点30在学院3号楼509报告厅做报告，主要介绍奥本大学电气工程及无线通信网络研发中心(WEREC)的相关情况，欢迎各位老师及研究生参加交流。具体信息如下：
Auburn University’s Wireless Engineering Research and Education Center (WEREC) was founded in 2002 with a general gift of $25M from Mr. Samuel Ginn, the past President of Vodafone (a British multinational telecommunications company). It involves faculty members from three departments and creates/runs the Bachelor for Wireless Engineering degree program, the first-of-its-kind in the world. In this talk, we will introduce the educational and research programs of the WEREC, and explore possible avenues for collaboration in research and education.
