The UH Cullen College of Engineering’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering held their alumni mixer last night at Saint Arnold’s Brewing Company in Houston. The alumni event was held in honor of professors emeriti Betty Barr and Ovidiu Crisan.

The ECE alumni mixer invitations had barely gone out to alumni of the department before the RSVP’s began flooding in. Being the first alumni mixer the ECE department has had in decades, the event was full within a week of the invitations being sent out.

At this year’s alumni mixer, guests enjoyed free food, beer and raffle prizes. The chair of the ECE department, Badri Roysam, along with Elizabeth D. Rockwell Endowed Chair and Dean of the Cullen College Joseph W. Tedesco, were both in attendance at the event.

Imagine an electronic “tattoo” on your skin that could continuously monitor your health, or tiny, biocompatible sensors that could treat a traumatic brain injury at the site. It may seem like science fiction, or at least a dream of a very distant future – but as John Rogers of Northwestern University explained to the UH community last week, these are both current examples of biocompatible devices that can integrate with the human body.

Invasive surgical techniques – cutting through the breastbone for open heart surgery or making a large incision to inspect an abdominal tumor – allow physicians to effectively treat disease but can lead to sometimes serious complications and dramatically slow healing for the patient.
