ECE Professor Steve Marcus was honored Tuesday night, August 30, 2005, for his five years of service as Chair of the Electrical and Computer Engineering department.

The celebration was held at the University of Maryland Golf Clubhouse, and was attended by fellow Maryland faculty, administration, staff, and friends. Dr. Reza Ghodssi served as master of ceremonies for the evening’s events, which included photo slideshows, humorous anecdotes, and video skits recorded by the department’s assistant professors. His colleagues, including the dean and provost, all said a few words to express their appreciations which also included gifts.

During Dr. Marcus' tenure as chair, the department increased faculty research funding and expenditures, raised the quality of its undergraduate and graduate student populations, hired a significant number of outstanding new faculty, and earned increasing recognition for its academic excellence through faculty awards and national publications.

Dr. Patrick O’Shea succeeds Dr. Marcus as ECE department chair.
