We hosted a Round table: Enhancing Engineering Education with Red Pitaya

A few weeks ago we hosted an online round table: Enhancing Engineering Education with Red Pitaya, and it was a fantastic opportunity to connect with renowned professors and gain invaluable insights to elevate engineering education. We also made sure to capture all the action by recording the entire event, and you can now catch the replay on our YouTube channel.

At Red Pitaya, we recognize the significance of engineering education in shaping a brighter future. This event allowed us to strengthen our ties with academic experts, understand their challenges, and explore collaborative solutions to enhance engineering education.

We owe a special shoutout to the professors who participated in the round table discussion. Their knowledge and passion for teaching inspired us, and we are grateful for their valuable contributions. The event wouldn't have been as insightful without their involvement.

The speakers were:

  1. Prof. Prasanna Rangarajan - Southern Methodist University
