IEEE Young Professionals and Women in Engineering, Windsor Section presents

“Energy Saving in Big Buildings”

Abstract: Frank Mills, Principal of Frank Mills Consulting Ltd, will present a lecture on “Energy saving in big building”. This lecture will provide an overview of natural ventilation starting with a review of early building ventilation to modern solutions which range from the use of windows (Simple NV) to the use of automatically controlled inlets, plenums, integral chimney and shafts, atrium spaces and roof outlets, turrets and exhausts (Advanced NV). It will cover design strategies, ventilation systems, components and their integration into building fabric and also design calculations, modelling techniques and exemplar projects including ‘full’ Natural Ventilation and ‘hybrid’ schemes and example projects.

Speaker: Frank Mills, Principal of Frank Mills Consulting Ltd. 

Speaker Bio: Frank Mills is a leading specialist in sustainable and energy efficient building engineering design. His experience includes the design, management, supervision, construction and operation of building services engineering across a range of building types including sports stadia, large scale mixed use developments sports facilities, leisure centers and hotels, retail community schemes internationally. He has been an ASHRAE member since 1971 and has been active on technical and standards committees and on Councils. He has presented ASHRAE ALI short courses on Natural Ventilation, Design of zero energy buildings and Healthcare HVAC and presented papers on Atrium design, Fire engineering, Education buildings, best practice engineering and sustainable development.

IEEE Computer Society South East Michigan Section presents

“Test Methods for Thermal Measurement, Reliabilty and Quality”

Abstract: From multi-core chips in slim smartphone devices or compact packaging of power semiconductor modules for lightweight electric vehicle inverters, understanding semiconductor package heat dissipation remains important for performance and product reliability purposes. This presentation introduces electrical test methods covered by JEDEC 51-1 standards. By utilizing this approach, the difficulties and problems measuring temperature at the component’s die are overcome.

Speaker: Joe Proulx, Senior Application Engineer

Speaker Bio: Joe has over 20+ years of experience as thermal engineer in industry. He has extensive CFD experience for electronics cooling analysis, and more than 7+ years specializing in thermal test measurement of semiconductors & reliability. Joe has several patents pending. He also regularly contributes to IEEE & SAE conference papers for power electronics reliability and electronics thermal simulation.

IEEE South East Michigan Section Computer Society presents:

An Introduction to Data Science

AboutData Science is the study of the generalizable extraction of knowledge from data. Being a data scientist requires an integrated skill set spanning mathematics, statistics, machine learning, databases and other branches of computer science along with a good understanding of the craft of problem formulation to engineer elective solutions. This short lecture will introduce you to this rapidly growing field and introduce some of its basic principles and tools as well as its general mindset.

Speaker: Sharan Kalwani

Speaker Bio: With over 30+ years’ experience, in various aspects of the way hardware, software has evolved, you can expect a unique perspective on the whole evolution of data science. The speaker has presented at numerous conferences and is viewed as an active evangelist in his areas of expertise.

Date: 22nd Feb 2018

Time: 6-8 PM EDT/EST

Location: Room 254, Engineering Center Oakland University Rochester, MI 48309
