UTD Electrical Engineering Professor Dian Zhou Wins China's Prestigious Chang Jiang Scholar Award
RICHARDSON, Texas (Feb. 10, 2003) - An electrical engineering professor at The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) has won the prestigious Chang Jiang Scholar Award from the Peoples Republic of China - believed to be a first for a Metroplex-area academic. University officials hope the designation will lead to increased scientific cooperation between the North Texas region and China.

Dr. Dian Zhou, a faculty member in UTD's Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science, will receive initial funding of approximately 2 million Chinese Ren-ming-bi (RMB), or nearly $250,000, to establish a microelectronics education and research program at Fudan University in Shanghai, China, his alma mater. He will also be furnished a laboratory at the university, staffed by as many as a dozen graduate and post-doctoral students and assistants. In addition, Zhou will help develop the Fudan Zhang-Jiang Institute, the charge of which will be to promote the growth of the microelectronics industry in Shanghai, home to numerous semiconductor and information technology companies.
UTD Electrical Engineering Professor Dian Zhou Takes Leave to Become Dean at China’s Fudan U.
RICHARDSON, Texas (Oct. 27, 2003) - Electrical engineering professor Dr. Dian Zhou will take a leave of absence from The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) to help his alma mater, Fudan University in Shanghai, China, develop its fledgling microelectronics program. He will serve as dean of the Microelectronics College at Fudan, where he earned an M.S. degree in electrical engineering and a B.S. degree in physics.

While on leave, he will continue to advise his graduate students at UTD and manage his ongoing research grants and projects in UTD's Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science.
