ECE Professor Shieh Retires after 40 Years


Leang Shieh has had a busy 40 years. Just look at the numbers. A professor in the Cullen College’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, over that period he has advised more than 100 graduate students and published 301 papers and counting — an average of roughly one every six weeks for four decades.

With that track record, it’s no surprise that Shieh’s colleagues wanted to do something special in honor his of retirement at the end of last month.
