Welcome Message from Alan Goodrum, Chairman of the ECE Industrial Advisory Board
Welcome to the Industry Advisory Board for the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. Our Board exists to help the ECE Department produce exceptional graduates, who can immediately become productive engineers in industry and government. Our understanding of what those graduates will be required to do provides critical guidance for maintaining a quality engineering program.
Our Board meets regularly with the department faculty, administration, and students to review not only today’s curriculum but also the goals for the future. We help the faculty establish priorities in the curriculum so graduates are prepared with both deep technical knowledge and skills, and the communication and organizational skills that are required to solve complex, real-world problems and to function efficiently in a fast-moving industry.
We welcome the input and involvement of other interested practicing electrical and computer engineering professionals. If you see an opportunity to improve the ECE program at the University of Houston, or if you would like to be involved with the Board, feel free to contact me.
