REFLECTIONS OF FORMER COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING DEAN WAI-FAH CHEN ON HCAC

"... It took us two years to search nationwide for the right person to lead the Center. We made a spectacular choice and recruited Professor Magdy Iskander from the University of Utah to lead the Center. Magdy and I have worked together closely and in consortia. He has taken the Center to new levels of excellence that promotes multi-disciplinary research, international collaboration, and partnership with industry.

As a research unit, the center places a significant focus of its activities and efforts on attracting research funding, recruiting doctoral students, and building research facilities. This year, the Center's funding reached a new high of $1.2 million, or $600,000 per faculty with eight doctoral students, or 4 per faculty, an incredible achievement by any measure..."
