Hand Me That Flux Capacitor
It might be time for some remedial math at Firehouse Pictures. After the first 5 minutes of working with the faculty and students at The University of Arizona's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), we knew we should have paid better attention in algebra class.
We're working on a series of pieces profiling some students and their projects, and an overview of the entire program. It doesn't take advanced math to realize electrical and computer engineers are in big demand.
"I can probably place as many electrical engineers at companies like Honeywell, Lockheed Martin , Raytheon and Texas Instruments as I can bring in the door," says Jeff Goldberg, the Dean of the College of Engineering.
Goldberg says he sees the students in the program as the ones who will tackle the big challenges in the world-like the development of new energy sources and climate change. So it follows that our theme for the piece is "problems equal opportunity."
On a technical note, D.P. Keith Page put to use a nicely designed piece of equipment, The Slider-pictured here with John Seale, ASC.
The Slider is a precision machined camera mount that allows the operator to make short moves in tight places, and with a quick set-up, that budget or time constraints might not otherwise allow.
