The much-anticipated yearly meeting that hosts the largest gathering of ECE department heads from throughout the United States and Canada will be returning to Hilton Head Island this spring.  Deans, lab managers and faculty members from member universities, local high schools, and community colleges and representatives from likeminded associations will also enjoy dedicated programming opportunities at the event.

In addition, nearly 40 industry leaders will be on hand to demonstrate the latest ECE technologies available during Sunday and Monday's ECExpo. Top sponsors also provide in-depth product overviews during the ECE Spotlight sessions.
