Message from Kris Hollot
Dear UMass Amherst ECE alumni and friends:
With Hurricane Sandy and the Oklahoma City tornado fresh in our minds, I invite you to read some timely ECE newsletter stories devoted to the tornado-chasing expertise of our Microwave and Remote Sensing Lab and a radar network built and deployed by our NSF Engineering Research Center CASA to help forecast flashfloods in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
While these stories reflect on ECE's teaching and research strength in radar engineering, Governor Patrick's recent announcement of $100 Million worth of funding by the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center for UMass Amherst and Western Massachusetts signals potential growth of bioengineering in our engineering college and in ECE. Stay tuned for updates.
As always, our newsletter stories highlight alums and students, and for all our fans of the ECE Senior Design Project, this year's winner was the "Real Time Concussion Analyzer," a system allowing football coaches to remotely monitor the concussive impacts a player experiences during a game.
I hope you enjoy catching up with our ECE department. Please send me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org, and best wishes for keeping cool in this summer's heat and humidity!
