"Our success in ECE can be attributed to our innovative and internationally renowned academic and research programs, but none of these things would be possible without the finest faculty, staff, and students anywhere," said Douglas B. Williams, interim school chair for ECE. "While these sorts of rankings may mean different things to different people, we can all be very proud of our accomplishments and the high esteem in which our peers hold us."
