ECE's Trombetta Performs With Jazz Ensemble

ECE associate professor Len Trombetta has been musical since childhood. He started playing the saxophone in 8th grade, and the clarinet four years before that. He was part of a big band group in high school, and in college studying physics at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. During graduate work at Lehigh University, he directed a student-run band for a couple of years. In New Jersey he briefly played with a rehearsal band. Then he arrived in Houston.

IEEE Holds 30th Annual Chili Cook Off

A brave professor holding down the dunking booth was not the only wet one at the UH Chapter of the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Chili Cook Off Thursday night.
