Roth Wins Textbook Award

Dr. Charles Roth has received the 2008 McGuffey Longevity Award for his fifth edition of Fundamentals of Logic Design. The Text and Academic Authors Association created the McGuffey Longevity Awards in 1993 to recognize textbooks and learning materials demonstrating excellence over a significant period of time. Works must have been in print at least 15 years and currently remain in circulation and use. Judges described Fundamentals of Logic Design as, exceptionally written and an excellent text because it can easily be used for a self-study or distance learning course. Dr. Roth has also won UT's Student IEEE's Most Useful Class Award two years in a row for EE 316, Digital Logic Design, a self-paced course that he developed.
