Activities that combine research and education are vital to producing highly skilled, critical thinking engineers. The Center of Microwave/Satellite and Radio-Frequency Engineering (COMSARE) at Morgan State University was founded to facilitate such activities. Under the leadership of Dr. Carl White, the center provides specialized training modules and research projects to its members. The training modules are collaboratively developed and supported by industrial partners. The research projects are designed to be consistent with the mission of the center and the university. Although the described training modules are specific to the microwave technology curriculum at Morgan, similar modules may be developed and integrated within an ABET approved curriculum. This paper will describe the evolution and development of COMSARE’s specialized training and research, the organizational structure of the center, the development of partnerships, its recruitment process and current statistics, and the future of engineering training and management.
