Faculty/ Staff Awards

BRIAN URBAN was elected from his fellow Texas engineering peers to receive the 2023 Stephen H Schott Excellence in Radio/TV Engineering Award at the Texas Association Engineer’s Dinner in Austin this Summer. Recipients demonstrate excellence in radio engineering with decades of service to Texas engineering, the ability to pass down their knowledge to others and quite truthfully the honesty that our friend Steve stood for.
