Phelps invited to speak at E4: The Last Lecture Series

Dr. Edward Phelps, assistant professor, has been invited as a featured speaker at the E4: The Last Lecture Series by the UF Engineering Ambassadors.

The E4: The Last Lecture Series is an annual lecture in which the UF Engineering Ambassadors highlight an outstanding professor in the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering and give them a platform to speak on subjects outside of the normal classroom topic.

This year’s theme is about the unexpected milestones that made Phelps a better engineer. The event will take place on Wednesday, November 28, 2018.

The last lecture series was inspired by a talk Professor Randy Pausch delivered at Carnegie Mellon University entitled “Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams.” In this talk, Pausch discussed everything he wanted his children to know after his pancreatic cancer had taken his life. In honor of Randy Pausch, the UF Engineering Ambassadors initiated their own Last Lecture Series here at UF to continue his legacy.

The UF Engineering Ambassadors is an organization on campus that serves as the liaison between the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering and its students: prospective, past, and present.

Congratulations, Dr. Phelps!
