2020 Gold Nugget Award Recipient: Harry (Hap) Lamberth
B.S. Electrical Engineering, 1962
After graduating from Texas Western College, now UTEP, Harry (Hap) Lamberth worked at White Sands Missile Range and at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station’s Eastern Range in Florida before starting a telephone equipment manufacturing company in El Paso.
In 1979, Lamberth moved to California, where he worked on military communications and electrical power conversion systems for companies such as Hughes Aircraft and L3 Power Systems. He later established his own consulting firm, HRL Company.
Lamberth has enjoyed many professional memberships and continues to serve on the UTEP College of Engineering Advisory Board.
“TWC presented an ideal combination of everything I needed to obtain a solid engineering education in a predictable time frame,” Lamberth said. “My part-time work at Schellenger Labs in close contact with my professors was essentially an engineering internship, giving me the ability to take responsible charge of projects at WSMR soon after graduation. This led to a fast-track career.”
