Booz Allen Hamilton Sponsors ECE Initiatives
Booz Allen Hamilton has made a gift to the Clark School to sponsor the Distinguished Colloquium Series in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and the upcoming ECE Centennial Celebration, as well as support a Capstone Design Project in ECE.
With the gift, Booz Allen Hamilton became a member of the ECE Corporate Affiliates program as well as the Clark School's Corporate Partners program.
ECE's Distinguished Colloquium Series has been held weekly on Friday afternoons since it was inaugurated in Spring 1997. The purpose of the series is to provide a forum for talks on innovative research and technology by external lecturers from academia, industry, and government, as well as by ECE faculty researchers, who share their research and scholarly studies with their peers.
"This important gift will allow us to bring more distinguished speakers from across the globe to speak here on the College Park campus," said Prof. Patrick O’Shea, chair of ECE. "We are very grateful to Booz Allen Hamilton for supporting our Colloquium series."
Starting this fall, the series will be renamed the Booz Allen Hamilton Distinguished Colloquium Series in Electrical and Computer Engineering.
