Department Head Letter

A Note from the Head of the Department

Dear Alumni,

I trust that you are having a great day; we are having a nice day in the Ozarks. You have reached your corner within our departmental website where you have some features to communicate with us. Please, visit the front page of our website to learn about our recent activities or click on the Facebook logo to see pictures of our student events.

For those interested in continuing education, the College of Engineering offers a Master of Science degree in Engineering and the department offers a Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering; both are distance learning programs developed specifically for individuals holding full-time jobs. More information can be obtained at and

Alumni help the department in many ways besides providing financial support. Your generosity, whether it is a donation of your time to a department cause or financial support, has impacted the lives of our students. Thus, we are very grateful when your company hires our graduates, you send us a suggestion to improve our EE curricula, or you volunteer to talk to our students when you are visiting. Our students benefit greatly from your experience.

If you are in town for any reason, please stop by.  We would be glad to facilitate a tour of our department or research centers and facilities. You could use the “contact EE Department” link to update your records so we can better communicate with you in a timely manner. You can also do this by calling Mrs. Connie Howard at 479-575-3008 or emailing her at
