The Cockrell School of Engineering established this award in 1977 to recognize a faculty member who has made significant contributions in furthering the profession of engineering.
Daniel Wasserman, an associate professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in the Cockrell School of Engineering, led the team that built the physical system, developed the measurement technique capable of achieving this level of sensitivity and successfully demonstrated its improved performance. Their work was reported today in Nature Communications.
Chancellors, Commissioners, Legislative Staff, Administrators, and Faculty Senators converged on the UT Austin campus on Monday, March 4, 2019 to discuss Texas Higher Education issues.
This award is established in recognition of the importance of university research to the advancement of design, automation and test. The award will be presented at the opening session of the Design, Automation and Test in Europe (DATE) conference in Florence, Italy in March 2019.
The Achievement Award is given to individuals who made outstanding contributions to the state of the art in electronic design, automation and testing of electronic systems in their life. In order to be eligible, candidates must have made innovative contributions which had an impact on the way electronic systems are being designed.
The award is the highest honor for PhD students awarded by the IEEE SSCS. Awards are made on the basis of academic record and promise, and quality of publications.
The system is a result of research work that resulted in a myriad of sensing devices for LIDAR, low-concentration biomarker detection, heavy metal detection, air-and water-pollution sensing, 40 Gbit/sec EO modulator, and wide band RF sensors.
