Don’t miss Tom Kopec, BSECE ’80, MSECE ’85! All are invited to an informal talk by a highly successful UMass ECE alum as he shares his 30-odd year adventure as an engineer, sharing some of the successes, mistakes, and lessons learned, as well as showing some of the products he’s produced and some of the projects he’s done as a hobbyist.
Tom Kopec graduated from UMass Amherst with a BSECE in 1980 returned for an MSECE granted in 1985. He’s been tinkering with radios and cars as long as he can remember, and holds an Extra Class Ham Radio license as well as a commercial General Radio Operator’s License. His professional career has spanned hardware, software, and manufacturing engineering, and such diverse areas as CPU design, database performance, speech synthesis, and aerosol particle analysis. Mr. Kopec is the author of four patents in Computational Linguistics. Mr. Kopec has also supported M5’s outreach activities for the past two years.
The Spring 2012 M5 TALK series is sponsored by Roberto Padavani (M.S. ECE ’83, Ph.D. ECE ’85) and Colleen Padovani (A.S. ’75, B.S. ’82).
