Message from the Chair

Dear Friends:

We are coming to the end of yet another successful year for the ECE Department at GW. Our students and faculty continue to shine with numerous recognitions and awards. The department’s graduate program rankings continue to rise. This rapid rise is without a doubt a reflection of the outstanding work done by our faculty and students. I invite you to read more about us and our ongoing activities and accomplishments.

I’ll be completing my 6-year term as department chair this summer and stepping down in July. It has been a very rewarding experience and I thank my department colleagues for giving me the privilege of leading the department, and wish the best for the incoming chair.

Best wishes for a wonderful summer!
