CSFair 2021, Senior Project Fair of Computer Engineering Department, took place on May 7, 2021, between 12:30-5:00pm.
Due to covid pandemic, CSFair was not a physical event; instead, we organized a virtual CSFair using the Zoom system.
CSFair included senior design project demos and presentations, short talks, project and personal award ceremonies, and a lot of fun. Our students and faculty, company representatives, and student families attended the event. We hosted our guests in Zoom system.
32 Projects participated. Each project had its own zoom meeting room for interactive demos, presentations and discussions. Awards were given to the projects in 8 categories. The awards were sponsored by companies. Additionally, awards were given to outstanding teaching assistants.
