Nicole Neveu, leader of the NASA-sponsored senior design team, presents their small satellite antenna design to their faculty advisors and sponsors.

Robert Provence, a NASA aerospace engineer, had a problem.

For over 12 years, Provence has been designing and developing small satellites called “CubeSats” for NASA. In this time, Provence has seen the design of CubeSats improve drastically – with one exception: the antennas for CubeSats have remained more or less the same since the beginning, and these antennas are, as Provence says, a problem.

ECE associate professor Len Trombetta has been musical since childhood. He started playing the saxophone in 8th grade, and the clarinet four years before that. He was part of a big band group in high school, and in college studying physics at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. During graduate work at Lehigh University, he directed a student-run band for a couple of years. In New Jersey he briefly played with a rehearsal band. Then he arrived in Houston.

Karen Studd is a professional dancer, devoting much of her waking hours to practicing and perfecting her discipline. And today is no different – she is moving slowly, methodically, gracefully across the room with such softness it’s as if she’s a ghost, weightless and transparent. In a room full of silent spectators, all eyes are on Studd as she dances her way across the room.

Since 2009, CenterPoint Energy has installed more than 2.2 million smart meters at homes and businesses throughout the Houston area. Every 15 minutes, these smart meters automatically record customer energy usage and send this data back to CenterPoint. This information is incredibly rich, and could offer the ability to predict power demand, help manage power generation, and even assist in planning the construction of future power plants.
