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.
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 Education
Symposium last month in Irvine, Calif.
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.
