College of Engineering Seeking Applications for ECE School Chair Position

Atlanta, GA

The College of Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology is seeking nominations and applications for the position of the Steve W. Chaddick School Chair of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE). The School of ECE is the largest ECE school in the nation: 110 full-time faculty members, 1,419 undergraduates, and 1,137 graduate students with an annual operating budget, including external funding, of approximately $90 million. The School offers two bachelor degrees (electrical engineering, computer engineering), and master's and doctoral degrees in electrical and computer engineering. All ECE degree programs consistently rank in the top six by U.S. News and World Report and regularly draw top notch students both domestic and international. In addition to the
main campus in Atlanta, ECE has students and faculty at the Georgia Tech Lorraine campus in France and has a number of other international educational programs at sites that include China, Germany and Italy.

Owing to the School of ECE’s size and quality, decisions made here reverberate on a national scale. The diverse faculty broadly represents all areas of research and education in ECE including: Bioengineering, Computer Systems and Software, Digital Signal Processing, Electrical Energy, Electromagnetics, Electronic Design and Applications, Microelectronics/Microsystems, Optics and Photonics, Systems and Controls, Telecommunications, and VLSI Systems and Digital Design. Much of the research of the School is conducted through internationally recognized interdisciplinary centers. Additional information may be found at https://www.ece.gatech.edu/research/.
