Chair's Message

Dear Alumni & Friends of the ECE Department

The Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) Department continues to be a vibrant community of scholars that excel in research as well as in the classroom. The department has one of the most active research programs at Texas Tech University. In the last year, Dr. Miao He, one of our Assistant Professors in the area of Power Systems received an NSF CAREER award entitled "Risk-Aware Power System Operations with Significant Wind Power Penetration". Seven ECE professors are members of the Texas Tech Teaching Academy delivering outstanding education from the freshmen to the Graduate student level. Recent successful comprehensive reviews of the graduate program under the guidelines of THECB and the undergraduate program under the guidelines of ABET ensure continued excellence at all levels.
