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:
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."
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:
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."
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:
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
