Shich-Chun Chang is the creator of the Electrical and Computer Engineering program at George Mason University. When he joined the faculty at Mason in 1985, he had already authored one of the first Chinese textbooks on microcomputers, and was the inventor of several systems of important code, including the Chang-Weldon code for MAAC. He is a graduate of engineering programs at several high-level Chinese institutions, as well as being affiliated with the University of Hawaii, the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and The George Washington University. As a founder of the ECE program at Mason, Chang has imparted his nearly limitless knowledge to students of coding theory, communication theory, computer networks, information theory, and digital communications. His recent coding work has pushed the edge of technology by aiding research in constructing quantum stabilizer code, atmospheric communications, and 100Gbps optical transmission.
