Year six started in September of 2002 and the Center is happy to report that the first two textbooks of a five textbook NCTT/Delmar telecommunications series have been published. Basic Telecommunications: The Physical Layer by Gary Mullett, Co-director wireless technology, and Telecommunications Network Infrastructure by Gordon Snyder the present executive director were highlighted at the Center’s showcase display at the annual ATE conference held in Washington DC (See Figure 1) and are now available.

The Center’s budget has been reduced further but at the same time, the stipends to the partner schools have been essentially eliminated. However, to this point, the telecommunications industry has not shown any signs of recovery and industry training is still all but non-existent.

The number of activities that involve the charter partner schools has been reduced and the Co-PIs are writing lab manuals to accompany the published texts and the writing of the next group of texts has been started. Planning has already taken place for a series of three four-day summer workshops in 2003 [10]. At this time the dates have been set for an introductory, intermediate, and advance telecommunications workshop that we hope will be well attended and provide the Center with a source of income. “Proceedings of the 2003 American Society for Engineering Education Annual Conference & Exposition Copyright © 2003, American Society for Engineering Education”
