Faculty and staff from the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department gathered with friends and family on Thursday, May 29, 2008 at the University of Maryland Golf Course to celebrate the retirement of Professor Steven Tretter. University of Maryland Provost Nariman Farvardin was on hand to present him with a signed letter of honorary citation from Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley.

Dr. Tretter completed his B.S. in electrical engineering at the University of Maryland nearly 50 years ago, and served as a faculty member in the ECE Department for 42 years. He also served as Director of the M.S. in Telecommunications program. Along with his wife, Teresa Tretter, he established the David Andrew Tretter Memorial Scholarship to honor the memory of their son. The scholarship is awarded to a full-time outstanding junior or senior engineering student with academic merit and financial need.

He intends to continue to stay active with Department and the M.S. in Telecommunications program through teaching and advising as an emeritus professor.
