The Maxwellians: ECE's Benefactors
Our ability to transport massive amounts of information and energy across the globe,
and our ability to store and process massive amounts of data, have directly contributed
to economic prosperity, higher standards of living, and greater longevity for everyone.
The future is only limited by our imaginations and the education that we provide to
our next generation of electrical and computer engineers.
The Maxwellians of ECE recognize that the future of our profession is in the hands
