Who am I
Name: Luke Farmer
Major: Electrical Engineering
Hometown: Manchester, IA
Get involved and ask questions. There are so many great opportunities during college whether it's research, student organizations, or other activities. Getting involved is really important. Also, don't be scared to ask questions. Almost everyone is willing to give advice or answers.
The opportunities and the community: you can do anything you want and the people are great. There hasn't been a goal I've had that I was unable to reach at Iowa. That's due to the massive amount of opportunities and the helping nature of the community.
I really enjoy playing spikeball, disc golfing, or just hanging out with friends.
I'm involved with the Newman Catholic Student Center on campus. It's been a great place to meet friends and relax outside of the Seaman Center.
Introduction to Software Design. It's a self-paced course that really feels like software engineering in the real world. It's the course that made me really want to pursue coding as a career.
I did research with Dr. Gomes in the chemical engineering department. The research revolved around using machine learning to solve different problems in engineering. One that we focused on were image super resolution.
This is a picture of me with my Internet of Things teammates with our automated chicken coop. We designed the hardware and web interface to automate taking care of chickens and notify the owner when a egg was laid or a chicken was present.
These are some of the screenshots from the final project in Introduction to Software Design. Our team created an app similar to Venmo where users could join groups and make payments.
