May 21, 2001

KALAMAZOO -- Hossein Mousavinezhad, chairperson of WMU's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, recently returned from a visit to Sweden's Orebro University.

Mousavinezhad was invited by that university to participate in a mentors meeting program. Similar to the advisory boards that guide many WMU programs, the mentors meeting included engineering experts from around the world. The only advisor from the United States, Mousavinezhad offered input on the university's research activities in the fields of robotics and intelligent control systems.

During his visit, he also spoke with Orebro officials about the possibility of establishing an international exchange program with WMU to increase the global knowledge of engineering students.
