EECS Alumni at MTT04

EECS faculty and alumni had a great time gathering at the International Microwave Symposium in Fort Worth, TX this past June 8, 2004. This years conference was called, Microwave Frontiers, and many of those at the meeting have been at the frontier of microwave research for years.

The EECS Department has had a great influence on the MTT society for many years, said Prof. George Haddad, who enjoyed seeing many of his colleagues and past students at the event. From administrative positions in MTT, to being the recipients of MTT awards, EECS is very well represented both from the perspective of faculty and students. Some of those who attended the event include UM faculty: George Haddad, Gabriel Rebeiz, Linda Katehi (now Dean at Purdue), Jack East, and UM alumni who are now faculty at other institutions, including Bob Trew, Mahhu Gupta, and Rhonda Flemming. Others came for the reunion alone just to visit with everyone. Paul Bauhahn traveled with his wife from Minnesota, and Bill Schroeder came from the east coast.

Chuck Krumm, who will have his hand in organizing the next reunion, said it was a great pleasure to be reunited with so many former friends, students and colleagues. While the success of the individuals in this group was truly impressive, their collective success is clearly attributable to the outstanding education they received during their years at Michigan. It was exciting as well to meet the more recent EECS graduates and to learn that they are fully prepared to carry on the tradition of Michigan engineering accomplishments.

Bob Trew, current MTT president, enjoyed seeing not only his past graduate students, including Mike Golio and Alfy Riddle, but the new UM grads. UM must have, by far, the single largest contingent of people attend the IMS, which is really saying something about the quality of the EECS program, said Trew.

One of these newer grads is Rhonda Franklion Drayton, assistant professor at the U. of Minnesota. I had a great time seeing old classmates and catching up with them and their lives, said Rhonda. I feel that Michigan did a good job preparing me for a faculty job, especially in the areas of research and supervision of others.

Including spouses, friends, and special guests, there were approx. 80 individuals at the reunion. Trew, one of the on-site organizers, gives special thanks to Dr. Jack East, and others, who had their hand in organizing the event.

The event was so successful, it has been made into an annual event. If you are in Long Beach, CA next June, be sure to stop by!

Homecoming 2003, A Success

Not only did the football team solidly trounce the Illini 56 to 14 at Homecoming Weekend this year but the EECS Alumni Society made some great strides as well.

We held our first tailgate party before the game and attendance was good. Thanks to the College of Engineering, four tables were designated EECS Society and were filled nearly to capacity throughout the party. It was a chance to greet old friends and to make many new ones--and all this with plenty to eat as well. Especially noteworthy were the block M decorated sugar cookies which tasted particularly good during the football game.

But the tailgate party wasn't all we had the opportunity to experience this year. On Thursday evening some of us attended the Recruiting Orientation meeting where we learned how we could support the College in encouraging new students to enroll in our Department. A tasty buffet followed with lots of interesting discussions with the students at the Student/Alumni Networking Dinner. Getting a chance to talk to the students was a pleasant and fulfilling experience. We can all be proud of them. There is no doubt that the University is still attracting bright and highly motivated students.

On Friday, the forum on "Wireless Communications," which included our fellow graduates, Mark Abel, BSE EE, Tony Fadell, BSE CE and Scott Kliger BSE CE on the panel, was extremely interesting and timely. It seems it won't be too long before the world is linked firmly together without wires. At noon, the Society held its annual executive committee meeting as part of the Lunch in the Departments event. The status of the Society was reviewed, its future discussed, and Mark Abel and Allen Oh were elected to the Board of Directors. The meeting ended just in time to attend the Dean's College of Engineering update. Particularly interesting was his description of the plans for our new Computer Science Building and the major addition to the Solid State Laboratory. Afterwards we had a chance to hear five of our former (and present) deans, Van Wylen, Ragone, Duderstadt, Vest, Banks and Director, discuss some of the interesting things that happened during their terms in the College.

Later, some of us attended a seminar by Michael Stonebraker, one of this year's EECS Alumni Honorees, while others took the North Campus walking tour. My how the North Campus has changed, if you haven't been back for a while you'd be amazed--you really should plan to visit sometime.

In the evening, we attended the Alumni Society Awards Dinner where our graduates Michael Stonebraker, MSE EE and PhD CICE, and Robert Trew, MS, PhD, were given the EECS Alumni Honoree awards and Eric Aupperle, BSE CICE, received the Alumni Medal for 2003. We're quite proud of their very impressive accomplishments.

Saturday rounded out the weekend with an interesting tour of the Central Campus, the Tailgate party, and the successful football game.

For those of you who missed all these great events--perhaps next year? In the meantime, keep in touch with the Society. And if you're not a member, please go to the membership page and join. We need your input and support, especially in these our formative years when we are still trying to define our goals and establish what would most benefit you, the alumni.

Go Blue!

Homecoming Weekend - Oct. 16-18, 2003

Homecoming promises to be a great weekend! It will be a chance for many of us to get together, renew old friendships, update ourselves on what has been going on in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and at the University, watch our beloved Wolverines trounce the Illini, and so much more!

The EECS Alumni Society will have a table at the College of Engineering Tailgate Party on Saturday, October 18, prior to the football game. We hope this table - a place for EECS alums to meet and talk -- will become an annual tradition. And remember that this year it will be just one of the many great events planned for the College of Engineering's celebration Years of Engineerng Excellence". Think of it! The College has been around for 150 years! And the EECS Department has been around for quite a long time, too -- since 1895, that's108 years, which isn't bad considering when electricity was first made practical. For more details see a brief summary of the EECS history.

Since we're still making final arrangements for Homecoming Weekend, remember to visit the EECS Alumni Society website often. And before you forget it, sign up for the Michigan Engineering Alumni Weekend so you can share with us the many other events that will be taking place, including the Engineering Alumni Society Awards Dinner where some of our fellow alumni will be honored and the many other exciting events planned. For all the details and a registration form, go to the College of Engineering web site.

I hope to see you there!

Society Executive Committee Changes

The EECS Alumni Society welcomes Dr. David C. Munson, Jr., the new chair of the EECS Department effective June 1. Dr. Munson, who also will serve on the Society executive committee, comes to us from the the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department on the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign campus. His research interests span a variety of topics throughout the field of signal and image processing. His research has concentrated on computational imaging, i.e. on systems that use computers to calculate images from data acquired by sensors. Examples of such systems include computer tomography, synthetic aperture radar, radio astronomy, and hybrid optical/digital systems. Munson has been especially involved in research on synthetic aperture radar, where recent projects focused on radar imaging of the moon, radar imaging of a runway from a landing aircraft, and on a new form of 3-D radar for imaging objects having complicated geometries.

Dr. Munson replaces Professor Richard B. Brown, Arthur F. Thurnau Professor of Engineering, who, while serving as Interim Chair of the Department, established the EECS Alumni Society. In addition to serving as Interim Chair for the past two years and spinning off two companies from the University, Dr. Brown has been supporting and advising 15 Ph.D. students in SOI microprocessor design, low-power mixed-signal microcontrollers, circuits to minimize gate and subthreshold leakage in advanced CMOS processes, and solid-state sensors for neurotransmitters and for heavy metals such as lead and arsenic. He is planning to take a long-overdue sabbatical next year. The Society is particularly grateful to Dr. Brown for taking the initiative in establishing the Society and for his ongoing encouragement.

Catharine June, who has served as Executive Secretary to Professor Brown during his time as Interim Chair, will continue working with Professor Brown, and will therefore step down as Society Secretary. Ms. June has been a valuable and tireless contributor to the Society administration and will be greatly missed. We wish Catharine well and expect that she will continue to be a strong supporter and friend.

The Society also welcomes Stacie Printon, the new Executive Secretary to the Chair and replacement for Catharine as Society Secretary.

The Society also welcomes Mr. Nicholas B Slovan, an undergraduate EECS student, who was recently appointed to serve on the Executive Board as the Society Student Representative.

For anyone else who is eager to become active in the Society, many other opportunities are available, including the position of Publicity Chair on the Executive Committee. Please contact Stacie, sprinton@eecs.umich.edu if you are interested in helping out.

Internet Protocols Book Published

Title: INTERNET PROTOCOLS -Advances, Technologies and Applications

Authors: Dr. Subrata Goswami

Publisher: Kluwer Academic Publishers, kluwer@wkap.com ISBN 1-4020-7476-X, List Price $125.00

Abstract: IP technology has progressed from being a scientific topic to being one of the most popular technologies in networking. Concurrently, a number of new innovations and technological advances have been developed and brought to the marketplace. These new ideas, concepts, and products are likely to have a tremendous influence on businesses and on our everyday lives. This book addresses many of these newer technological developments and provides insights for engineers and scientists developing new technological components, devices and products. New developments in Mobility, Storage, Telecommunications, etc. are explored in substantial details. Unlike many other books that go very deep into one area, this book covers the essentials of many different areas and at the same provides ample depth for the interested reader. Another distinguishing feature of the book is how IPv6 is treated on equal footing as IPv4 whenever applicable. The book makes extra effort to place IP protocols and principles in practical context through many real world examples of software, hardware, systems and network implementations. The book is about 400 pages and divided into 10 Chapters.
