  • James Fujimoto, the Elihu Thomson Professor of Electrical Engineering at MIT has been selected for the 2014 IEEE Photonics Award. The award, which is sponsored by the IEEE Photonics Society, is given in recognition of outstanding achievements in photonics. Prof. Fujimoto is cited “for pioneering the development and commercialization of optical coherence tomography for medical diagnostics.”
  • EECS graduate student, Cody Gilleland has been named as the first a recipient of “The Regeneron Prize for Creative Innovation by a Graduate Student.” The national award is a new initiative by Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. to recognize scientists early on in their career and to recognize their accomplishments.
  • Dept. Head Anantha Chandraksan has announced the appointment of Prof. Jeffrey H. Lang to the Vitesse Professorship in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, effective July 1, 2013. The Vitesse Chair was established in 2000 to honor the Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation, a company co-founded in 1984 by former MIT students.
  • "Prof. Amar Bose made tremendous contributions to the EECS Department and was known to all of us – and to the students who were fortunate enough to interact with him – as a truly remarkable educator, researcher and mentor." Read more of the appreciation by EECS Dept. Head Anantha Chandrakasan of Dr. Amar Bose.
  • Jouya Jadidian has been awarded the best student paper prize at IEEE PPPS 2013, the combined 19th IEEE Pulsed Power Conference (PPC) and the 40th IEEE International Conference on Plasma Science (ICOPS) which was held June 2013 in San Francisco, CA, for the paper entitled, “Abrupt Changes in Streamer Propagation Velocity Driven by Electron Velocity Saturation and Microscopic Inhomogeneities.”
  • Joel Voldman engineers cutting-edge approaches to stem cell signaling, point of care therapeutics, and neuroengineering. In the never-ending mega study of how biological systems work, Joel Voldman’s mission is to understand the most basic interactions between single cells. To achieve that, he applies the power of microfluidics to isolate the actions and behaviors of single cells and the interactions between cells.
