Gao Chosen as IEEE Fellow

Lixin Gao

Professor Lixin Gao of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department has just received notice that she will receive the honorary title of Fellow from the IEEE “for contributions to inter-domain internet protocol network routing.” IEEE was originally an acronym for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, but today the organization's scope of interest has expanded into so many related fields that it is simply referred to by the letters I-E-E-E (pronounced Eye-triple-E).

New Hluchyj Fellows Named for 2009-2010

Two new Hluchyj Fellows have been named for the 2009-2010 academic year, and they couldn't present more of a contrast. He (Jack) Ze, an incoming doctoral student in electrical engineering, is from the exotic and historical city of Hangzhou, China, which Marco Polo referred to as "the City of Heaven" during his 13th-century visit there. Meanwhile, doctoral nursing student Shoshana Gladstone comes from the nearby home town of Pelham, Massachusetts, former stomping grounds of Daniel Shay and his anti-establishment rebels in 1786-87.

Hluchyj Fellowship Get-together

On Friday, October 2, a group of people involved intimately with the Hluchyj Fellowship program took advantage of the Skinner Hall dedication ceremonies to get together and celebrate the two donors, Dr. Michael Hluchyj ('76 B.S. Electrical Engineering) and Mrs. Theresa Hluchyj (B.S. School of Nursing). The Hluchyjs are supporting annual stipends of $25,000 each for one graduate student in the College of Engineering and one graduate student in the School of Nursing.
