B. Guiding Influences
14
Guiding Philosophy Four Pillars of Excellence
15
Guiding Philosophy Approach to Problem Solving
For every problem, there is not just a
solution but a good solution.
16
Guiding Philosophy Approach to Working with
People
  • Most important thing in working with people is to
    treat them like people.
  • Associate personalities with those of your family
    members, friends, etc.
  • Treat people with the same respect and dignity
    you expect to receive from them
  • Understand that no one is perfect.

17
Guiding Principles
  • From the Upanishads
  • Matrudevo bhava Revere the mother as God!
  • Pitrudevo bhava Revere the father as God!
  • Acharyadevo bhava Revere the preceptor as God!
  • Atidhidevo bhava Revere the guest as God!

18
Among the Guiding Personalities William L.
Everitt (19001986)
  • Head of the department 1944-1949
  • Dean of the College of Engineering 1949-1968
  • During his tenure as head, the department more
    than doubled its size of faculty and students.
  • 1984 named to IEEEs Centennial Hall of Fame as
    one of top two electrical engineering educators
    of the century

I am an optimist rather than a pessimist. It is
possible that the pessimists may be proven right
in the long run, but we optimists have a better
time on the trip.
19

Jordan (19101991)

Inspiring Faculty on Graduate Education
The Dilemma of Graduate Education and VISION
2001 My Dear distinguished ECE Colleagues And
respected pundits in your own fields I am here to
engage you on our graduate program And impress
upon you the urgent need for reform To reiterate
my emphatic utterances In the past two weeks at
area meetings I say again graduate education is
in trouble Ironically because of the economic
bubble To counter that ours is a top-ranked
department Therefore, we are immune to this
predicament I declare, is like getting caught in
the illusion Banking on the myth of a rock solid
foundation For I assure you without a concerted
attack The rock solid foundation will surely
crack So, let me remind you all of VISION
2001 For us to agree upon as the attack in
unison While we may have our own preferences In
the matter of implementing the details Think of
you as riding the horse of VISION 2001 To conquer
the dilemma of graduate education Let us together
go on the ride By taking the steps in stride.

Motivating Students for Studying Electromagnetics
The Relevance of EM and EMantras To My Dear ECE
229 Student Whether by design or accident You
might be wondering why you should study EM Okay,
let me tell you about it by means of a PoEM First
you should know that the beauty of EM Lies in the
nature of its compact formalism Through a set of
four wonderful EMantras Familiarly known as
Maxwell's equations They might be like mere four
lines of mathematics to you But in them lie a
wealth of phenomena that surround you Based on
them are numerous device That provide you
everyday services Without the principles of
Maxwell's equations Surely we would all have been
in the dark ages Because there would be no such
thing as electrical power Nor would there be
electronic communication or computer Which are
typical of the important applications of ECE And
so you see, EM is fundamental to the study of
ECE Whether by design or accident My Dear ECE 229
Student.
