Three electrical engineering students at Weber State College have won a top spot in a national electrical engineering competition for students.

The three Weber State seniors, Carol Norman of Mantua, Greg Campbell of Kaysville and Amin Khan of Layton, placed in the top eight of a national contest for student electrical engineers contest sponsored by Motorola. The WSC students designed and manufactured a computer as part of the development of the college's next satellite."The students did a lot of research to see if the design we wanted for the satellite was even feasible. What they came up with was a good design," said Dr. William G. Clapp, associate professor of electronic engineering technology at Weber State.

The Motorola competition tested students' ability to use all of the electronic capabilities of a computer micro processor, Dr.

Clapp said.
