‘My Experiences in the Baltic Region in the Early 1990s Were the Most Powerful of My Entire Life’

As a student and journalist in the Baltic region of the USSR in the early 1990s, I witnessed firsthand the fear and turmoil that overtook the area. I recently reflected on that time during a special event in Connecticut that brought together locals with ties to the Baltics to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the restoration of independence in that region.

Virtual Capstone Design Expo 2021

The Capstone Design Expo is an opportunity for our students to showcase the results from their capstone design course. Student teams work to create a specific design solution for a "customer's" real and unique need. Design and design education are, by their nature, experiential and collaborative, and our design team sponsors are our key collaborators. As a result of this collaboration, students bring energy and new ideas to meet the design need.
