Dr. Ghassan AlRegib, Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering was instrumental in creating opportunities for Georgia Tech to be involved in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East. Under his leadership, Georgia Tech and King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM) established the Center for Energy and Geo Processing (CeGP), a joint center designed to develop advanced signal processing theories and algorithms to study the viability of conventional and unconventional energy sources. Dr. AlRegib also initiated the TECHxplore program to offer KFUPM junior/senior engineering students the opportunity to enroll in a fall semester at GT and participate in cultural activities. These accomplishments prompted Aramco to ask Dr. AlRegib’s help in creating a Professional MS degree in Sustainable Electrical Power Systems.
