Researchers Win Nearly $1 Million in Defense Grants for Equipment
Two grants totaling nearly $1 million won by researchers in the Texas Analog Center of Excellence (TxACE) will lower the hurdle for research and development in high frequency integrated circuit design.

Each year researchers throughout the country compete in the Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP) for funds for instrumentation needed to carry out high-quality, cutting-edge research of interest to U.S. defense.

Last year, Dr. Kenneth O, professor of electrical engineering and director of TxACE, and Dr. Rashaunda Henderson, assistant professor of electrical engineering and a TxACE member, successfully competed against more than 500 researchers to receive funding. The measurement systems are expected to be available for use this fall.
ECS Professors Selected to Share Innovative Teaching Ideas
Two professors from the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science were selected to participate in the National Academy of Engineering’s Frontiers of Engineering EducationSymposium last month in Irvine, Calif.
The academy chose 73 engineering educators to share ideas and learn from best practices. The attendees, nominated by NAE members or university deans, were recognized for developing and implementing innovative educational approaches in engineering. The fifth-annual symposium focused on online learning, including MOOCs (massive open online courses), gaming and flipped classrooms.
