ECE dedicates four labs sponsored by BAE SYSTEMS.

On Tuesday, May 29, the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering dedicated four state-of-the-art laboratories for research and education in computer engineering, made possible in part by a generous gift from BAE SYSTEMS.

"BAE SYSTEMS has made the single most significant external contribution to our computer engineering programs," said Steven Marcus, Professor and Acting Chair of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. "At the graduate level, we now have first-class facilities for research in computer engineering. At the undergraduate level, we have two completely modernized laboratories for courses and projects that focus on both the hardware and software aspects of computer engineering. These facilities will positively impact almost every student studying in this important field."

The BAE SYSTEMS Computer Engineering Instructional and Research Laboratories were dedicated on Tuesday, May 29, in a ceremony held at the University. Bruce Hamilton, President, BAE SYSTEMS Technology Services Sector and Mark Ronald, President and CEO of BAE Systems North America joined C.D. (Dan) Mote, President of the University, William W. Destler, Vice President for Research and Dean of the Graduate School, and Nariman Farvardin, Dean of the Clark School of Engineering for the dedication.

The day included tours of each of the four laboratories, hosted by six computer engineering faculty members and 24 students.
