Steve Chaddick was both an undergraduate and graduate student at ECE. He received his BEE IN 1974 and his MSEE in 1982. He currently is a Sr. Vice President with CIENA. In 1997 he established an endowment for the Steve W. Chaddick Chair in High Speed Electro-optics along with the Georgia Research Alliance and accompanying graduate fellowships. Steve's comments about ECE:

"Tech, its people and my experiences-- these come to mind clearly as the dominant influences in my early adulthood. . .I made bonds with people that will last a lifetime, and I learned humility at the hands of not a few professors. Tech was a great place to grow up and to build a foundation for lifelong learning."


Kelvin Hawkins received his MSEE degree in l992 from Georgia Tech after completing his undergraduate EE education at Boston University. He has worked for IBM since his graduation, and has spent the past five years in computer design, first as a motherboard engineer, and now as a System Manager responsible for a team of eight, who see projects through from concept to a customer shippable unit. Kelvin says this about his ECE experience:

"Georgia Tech provided me with the technical know-how to compete in the high tech industry of computer development. The course load at GT has always been challenging and this challenge is no different from the project deadlines, technical problems and creative invention required to succeed in today's fast-paced world of technology. The GT experience pays dividends in the long run of life."


Gabriel Rincon-Mora received his MSEE in l994, and his Ph.D. in 1996 from ECE. He is now a senior integrated circuit designer with Texas Instruments. Gabriel is the recipient of the National Hispanic In Technology Award, the author of several journal publications, and the author of a book to be published by IEEE in 2001. In addition, he holds several patents. What Gabriel has to say about GT:

"My training at Georgia Tech gave me the knowledge and skills to make a significant contribution to Texas Instruments and to the engineering field as a whole. The technical, from theoretical to practical, as well as the communication skills I developed during my program propelled my career to where it is today. My accomplishments and recognitions are really a direct result of my education at Georgia Tech."
