Ah, me ol' alma mater. It was Lowell Technological Institute (A.K.A. the poor man's MIT) when I was an E.E. frosh, a bit later was renamed University of Lowell. I don't recognize Dr. Elbirt. Maybe he was still in training pants when I was there? Are we feeling old yet? :-O
Actually I have been at Lowell for three years now.  We had a large 
turnover in the department after an early retirement package was put out 
(we lost 1/3 of our faculty).

Hi, Adam! I assume you were referring to E.E. Dept. Really too bad about the faculty losses; most of my E.E. profs. had earned my respect (and gratitude) by the time I graduated. Prof. Martin Patt, in particular. I credit him with getting me through "Complex Variables For Engineers" with a (relatively) easy AB ... during a *summer* semester, no less. Is Prof. Laste still around? We called him "Fast Laste" because he always dashed across a blackboard at warp speed; listen up or perish!
I was definately referring to the ECE Dept - unfortunately both Profs. 
are no longer with the Department.  We have seven new faculty that have 
been hired over the past 2.5 years so it is definately exciting :)

So I guess it would be too much to hope that Bob Dirkman still teaches. Of my favorites, he definitely was #1. Had him for everything from fundamentals through linear feedback systems, and I worked for him as a t.a. for a couple semesters. Great guy; wonderful teacher. Michael
Yes he is gone too.
