WACO, Texas (February 8, 2017) Casey Latham, a graduate student in electrical and computer engineering at Baylor, met with the leaders of the IEEE chapter in Dallas this past weekend. Latham received an award for bringing the Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-Society) to Baylor’s campus for the first time, showing the increased presence of high-end microwave research at Baylor. This society will allow the students to bring in distinguished microwave lecturers from around the world to speak with the students about their work. The lecturers will come from a wide variety of areas, including radar, wireless communications (including LTE Advanced and 5G), body area networks, among others.

The Dallas chapter of IEEE expressed excitement at the possibilities of forming a new student branch at the university and is looking forward to the increased cooperation between the two organizations. Latham, a graduate student under the supervision of ECE faculty member Dr. Charles Baylis, expressed excitement at forming a student branch. “The IEEE Dallas section is really excited about the work in microwave research that is going on at Baylor,” Latham said, “It’s a very exciting time for the department!”
