Electrical & Computer Engineering Doctoral Program

Bio

Dr. Jorge Garza-Ulloa earned his Bachelor of Engineering degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering Monterrey  in 1977 from the Instituto Tecnologico en Monterrey, N.L. Mexico. He received his Master of Science degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 1980 from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. In spring 2010 he joined the UTEP doctoral program. Electrical and Computer Engineering /Biomedical engineering PhD degree in University of Texas in May 2013. Dr. Garza-Ulloa has been the recipient of numerous honors and awards including a University of Texas at El Paso Graduate School Research Award, Research Schellenger Foundation, and funds for his research from Stern Foundation.  While pursuing his degree, Dr. Garza-Ulloa worked as a research associate for the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and taught courses for the ECE UTEP department. He was a team leader and winner in the 2012 Camino Real Ventura International Competition. Dr. Garza-Ulloa has published his research at international journals including the 2012 Journal Measurement Elsevier with a novel Mathematical Model for the Validation of the Ground Reaction Force Sensor in Human Gait Analysis, and in Scientific Research with a novelty mathematical model to predict Transition-to-Fatigue during isometric exercise on muscles of the lower extremities. International conference meeting: ASEE Annual Conference with the Development / Design Theory and Methodology Model for Mechatronics”. Dr. Garza-Ulloa dissertation entitled, “Assessment and evaluation of the dynamic behavior of muscles with special reference to subjects with Diabetes Mellitus”.

His main research interests include: Sensor/Data Validation, Biomedical Engineering, Biomechatronics, Computational Intelligence, and Locomotion Neurorehabilitation. He worked as a Test Engineer at Thomson TV division( formely RCA), as being Research and Professor at Instituto Tecnologico de Cd. Juarez / Centro de Graduados (ITCJ/Graduate Center) and he has founded three international technologies consultant companies. He has been certified as consultant by: Autodesk, Microsoft, Flexsim, and National Instruments He was the designer of the first Mexican Micro-Computer T.A.Co (Technology & Automated Computer), the first Spanish synthesizer name RO.VO ( Robot VOice ) and several specialized electronic manufacturing equipment to improve production

Dr. Garza-Ulloa has a post- graduation plan to continue his research, and teaching in Universities/Research Centers, with the goal on develop new methods/equipment for Healthcare systems (Bio-medical Engineering)/Testing performance. Currently, he works on his research at UTEP at the Laboratory for Human Motion Analysis and Neurorehabilitation , he has published novelty papers related to his field in international scientific journals and conference proceedings.

Current Scheduled Teaching Courses

"A course must be completed with a final project assigned, this enabled students to continue learning even outside of class. Through this innovative approach of assigning a final project since the beginning of the semester, students can begin planning of the project. The project requires of students to take from the theory learned in class and present a real life application, explanation, and simulation from it. As the semester progresses, this also allows students to always be mindful of how to connect all the material they have learned though out the semester and fully understand it. Not only is the final project a great way to review the material, but also to help students learn how to create a presentable and professional final product which they can be proud of it. This is of especial use for aspiring electrical engineers who will need to develop and refine these skills for the future" Jorge Garza-Ulloa
