William Torres (Class of 2020, dual concentration in electrical and computer engineering) will be pursuing a doctoral degree in electrical engineering at Michigan State University (MSU) beginning this fall. At MSU, William will be doing graduate research in the area of antenna design. He will be investigating ways to improve the performance of wireless communication systems using antennas configured as coherent distributed arrays.
While at Loyola, William was a member of the robotics club beginning in his freshman year and served as president of the club during his junior and senior years. William was also a founding member and key participant of the school’s newly formed IEEE club.
“William was a really diligent student in my classes,” noted Dr. David Hoe, associate professor of engineering at Loyola. “He was among a select group of students I asked to help with my research in robotics during the spring 2019 semester. This is a great opportunity for William to continue his education at MSU, a leading research university. I’m expecting him to do quite well.”

The favorable faculty member to student ratio at Loyola combined with a curriculum that introduces state-of-the-art technology prepares our electrical and computer engineering students for extraordinary opportunities in industry and for graduate school studies.
