Computer Engineering Undergraduate

Cheyenne Tucson became a student at Fort Lewis College (FLC) in the fall of 2018. She graduated high school in 2014 with her cosmetology license in South Carolina, and has recieved reciprocity in New Mexico and Colorado. Over the course of her career in the beauty industry, she began to realize that her love for hair was rooted in the science behind the sceen. She is currently practicing cosmetology along side her studies as she prepares for her journey into her new career in the computer engineering field. Her interest in the computer engineering field stems from her curiosity and infatuation with electronics as a teenager.

Cheyenne started working for Dr. Yiyan Li's lab in the summer of 2020. She has worked on projects related to robotics, analog/digital circuit design, embedded systems, and web development. Through these projects, she has expanded her knowledge of DC circuitry, learned various practical skills for designing circuits, gained experience in designing for clients, and further realized her passion for robotics and embedded systems.

Projects and Related Presentations

Web Repository and Interactive Map for Borders and Languages (BL190)  -  in progress
This project involved deep learning (X)HTML and CSS to create a web repository of resources necessary to teach the Borders and Language course.
The web site was created to the liking and requirements of Dr. Carolina Alonso and Dr. Janine Fitzgerald. Content was provided by Dr. Carolina Alonso.

Completing the Labs for CE Junior Design (CE 315)   -  completed

This project involved completing the labs for the Microcontrollers class (CE351) to learn the basics of how to use Arduinos and ATMega chips,
and to learn how they work. This involved learning more about analog and digital circuit design, and embedded systems.

Line Following Car Tutorials for a new First Year Launch course to be taught by Dr. Yiyan Li  -  completed
This project involved optimizing component placement for efficiency, analog-to-digital circuit design, creating an instruction manual/tutorial.
