Hsi-Tseng Chou’s innovative course development and teaching methods have quickly grown Yuan Ze University’s College of Electrical and Communication Engineering (CECE) into an award-winning program in Taiwan. Dr. Chou implemented a new teaching system in 2006 that transformed the CECE and earned recognition by receiving important funding from Taiwan’s Ministry of Education. He integrated the CECE’s course structures among its departments to allow students to pursue multiple degrees. He introduced courses on antennas and propagation, microwave engineering, and fundamental communication theory and created project-based laboratories for these courses. He incorporates industrial knowledge within his courses and exposes students to industry experts through off-campus opportunities. His methods have prepared students to play an important role in the global wireless technology industry.

An IEEE Fellow, Dr. Chou is a professor and dean of Research and Development with the Department of Communications Engineering, Yuan Ze University, Chung-Li, Taiwan. Chou was the recipient of the 2014 IEEE Undergraduate Teaching Award.
