Alumni

Pavesi, Michele- Italy
"I participated in the activity of LCEC while attending the last year of my bachelor degree at Politecnico di Torino in Electronic Engineering. The internship was part of the program Erasmus+ Traineeship.
At the LCEC group my main goal was to figure out a way of using the MODBUS protocol of communication implemented on a FPGA. This goal challenged me in many ways since it was my  first experience outside the classes, and even though I didn’t have enough time to create the entire protocol, I’m proud of what I’ve done. 
I enjoyed being in an environment where people share the passion for electronics and where there is always someone which can give you insights into what he’s doing/thinking. Furthermore at ISEL, students and professors share a lot of time together outside classes and the labs are always open.”
