UD Partners with Research Group for Sensors Curriculum

The University of Dayton is adding new curriculum for sensors and intelligence by partnering with a local research group.

UD and Riverside Research will offer a new course, Fundamentals of Remote Sensing & Technical Intelligence, within the school’s department of electrical and computer engineering. It will be open to graduate students in the spring semester.

It will attract more sensors-related research to the private Marianist university of 11,000 students, whose University of Dayton Research Institute has been heavily involved in sensors research and development for several years.

Ohio education leaders have prioritized curriculums that help prepare students for future jobs in Ohio as an effort of workforce development. As such, colleges and universities have been looking to partner with employers for training initiatives.

Riverside Research developed the course, which will be taught by its senior technical expert, Howard Evans.

It will “blend materials science, physics, optics, electronics, and computer information processing in an exploration of intelligence source-sensor design and operations,” the company said in a release.

Additional courses are being developed between the two groups.

“Our partnership with Riverside Research will provide our students hands-on, real world experience,” said Tony Saliba, dean of University of Dayton School of Engineering, in a release. “In turn, we hope to provide the community with a ready-to-work pool of future employees.”
