Name: Steve Holland
User Type: Faculty/Staff
Biography: I am an assistant professor in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department, teaching courses across the Electrical Engineering spectrum. Originally from Chicago, IL, I am a proud alum of MSOE (BSEE ’06). After graduation I attended the University of Massachusetts Amherst for graduate school, earning both a Master’s of Science and Ph.D. in electrical engineering.

My graduate research focused on developing advanced antennas and high performance, low-cost ultra-wideband (UWB) antenna array topologies for radar/communication system applications, as well as traditionally cost-prohibitive commercial and medical arenas such as cancer screening, collision avoidance radars, search and rescue imaging, and cognitive radio. This work resulted in the development of two patent-pending technologies, the Banyan Tree Antenna (BTA) Array and the Planar Ultrawideband Modular Antenna (PUMA) Arrays. After completing my studies I went on to work as a Senior Sensors Engineer at the MITRE Corporation, a not-for-profit company that runs several FFRDC’s (Federally Funded Research and Development Centers), conducting research for the United States Government.

Professional Societies:
IEEE Antennas and Propagation
IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques IEEE Education Society
ASEE - American Society for Engineering Education

I am interested in helping students grow into successful and happy graduates by helping them identify a field that they thoroughly enjoy and that will allow them to make the most of their talents.

Student Research:
Currently I am looking for students interested in working on a research project involving antennas, radar, electromagnetics, microwave/RF circuits or general analog and digital electronics. Please contact me and we can discuss your interests!
