Thank you for attending the 2014 ECEDHA Annual Conference and ECExpo!

ECEDHA celebrated it's 30th anniversary at the 2014 ECEDHA Annual Conference and ECExpo. Thank you to everyone that participated to make this event such a success!

This much-anticipated yearly meeting hosted the largest gathering of ECE department heads from throughout the United States and Canada. Deans, lab managers and faculty members from member universities, local high schools, and community colleges and representatives from likeminded associations also enjoy dedicated programming opportunities at the event.

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