1 ECE 1100: Introduction to Electrical and Computer Engineering Wanda Wosik Associate Professor, ECE Dept. Spring 2011 Notes 2 Slides adapted from lectures by Drs. Dave Shattuck/David Jackson/Charlson

2 Where in UH Are We? UH Organizational Hierarchy Administrators and Faculty Who’s in charge? Where do I go for help/information/complaints? Who are the faculty and what do they do?

3 The Engineering complex consists of two main buildings, connected by a walkway on the second and third floors:  Engineering Bldg. 1, also called “Bldg. D” (This is the “south” or the “old” Engr. Bldg., labeled as Bldg. 579 on campus maps).  Engineering Bldg. 2, also called Bldg. “D3” (This is the “north” or the “new” Engr. Bldg., labeled Bldg. 581 on campus maps). Examples: W316-D3 (Prof. Wosik) W122-D3 (our class) First, a Note on the Engineering Buildings

4 A Note on the Engineering Buildings (cont.) Easy way to find north on campus: look for the architecture building (the one with the “Greek columns”). Note: A room that begins with E or W is in building D3. E means east of the main hallway, W means west of the main hallway. A room that beings with N or S is in building D. N means north of the “commons” area, S means south of the commons area.

7 Top Organizational Structure Provost Chancellor: Renu Khator President: Renu Khator John J. Antel Board of Regents University of Houston System University of Houston (main campus) Vice President for Research Stuart Long Vice President for Student Affairs Elwyn C. Lee

8 Top Organizational Structure (cont.) The head of a department is called a Chair Colleges Departments The head of a college is called a Dean. (13 colleges at UH)

9 The Board of Regents is the governing body of the University of Houston System as authorized by the Texas Legislature according to Section 111.11 of the Texas Education Code. Carroll Robertson Ray Chair, UH System Board of Regents The Board of Regents consists of nine members. Each serves a six-year term. Every two years, the Governor of the State of Texas, subject to Senate confirmation, appoints three new members to the Board of Regents. Top Organizational Structure (cont.)

10 The Chancellor/President helps to initiate, monitor, approve, and coordinate long–range planning for the system and UH campus. The Chancellor/President oversees system and campus activities with the help of Vice Presidents and the Provost. Renu Khator Chancellor, UH System President, UH Top Organizational Structure (cont.)

11 In addition to overseeing faculty hiring, promotion, and tenure, the Provost works with faculty to effect curriculum development. He collaborates with other vice presidents to integrate physical and technological innovations in classrooms. Dr. John Antel Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs Provost The Provost is the chief academic officer. The Provost reports to the President for oversight of all educational affairs and activities. Top Organizational Structure (cont.)

12 Stuart Long Vice President for Research The Vice President for Research oversees all research activities on the campus. Top Organizational Structure (cont.)

18 Faculty Who we are: - Mostly Ph.D.’s from Engineering/Science What we do: Teaching Research Service Where we are: - Teaching and Research University - Urban University

19 Faculty Categories Assistant Professor (usually not tenured) Associate Professor (usually tenured) Professor (usually tenured) Advancements are based on research performance, teaching record, and service to the university and profession. Note: tenure implies that the faculty member is permanently with the department.

20 Research Funding - Grants/Proposals Facilities - Research Equipment/Lab Space Research Projects - Interest/Relevance Graduate Students - MSEE, PhD

21 Teaching Graduate Courses * regularly scheduled courses (6xxx) * special topics courses (ECE 6397) * seminar courses (6111) UG Courses (1xxx-4xxx) UG/GRAD Courses (ECE 5xxx) - open to seniors and graduate students The second digit tells the number of credit hours. The first digit tells the level of the course.
