20 recipients recognized for decades of engineering achievements.


Jacobs, SM ’57, ScD ’59, an IEEE Life Fellow and prime supporter of Qualcomm, Inc., has been named beneficiary of the 2013 Medal of Honor, IEEE’s most elevated honor. Jacobs is being regarded for authority and crucial commitments to advanced correspondences and remote innovation. As CEO of Qualcomm from its establishing in 1985 to 2005 — and as executive through 2009 — he administered the organization’s progressive advancements in Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA), an innovation key to the present 3G portable remote guidelines and one that helped Qualcomm contend internationally.

Jacobs already filled in as fellow benefactor, CEO and director of Linkabit Corp., prompting the advancement of Very Small Aperture Earth Terminals (VSATs) and the VideoCipher satellite-to-home TV framework. Linkabit converged with M/A-COM in August 1980, and Jacobs filled in as official VP and as an individual from the top managerial staff until his renunciation in April 1985. More than 100 San Diego correspondences organizations follow their foundations to Linkabit.

engineering achievements.



Dennis has been granted the IEEE John von Neumann Medal for exceptional accomplishments in PC related science and innovation. Dennis is being respected “for key deliberations to actualize security in working frameworks and for the dataflow programming worldview.”

Dennis, a teacher emeritus in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, was the first pioneer of the Computation Structures Group at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. He drove the advancement of dataflow models of calculation and novel standards of PC design roused by dataflow models. As of now, Dennis is occupied with research on utilitarian programming standards and related standards of PC engineering, and is applying these ideas in the outline of a novel propelled multiprocessor chip for broadly useful figuring.

Langer has been granted the IEEE Medal for Innovations in Healthcare Technology. He was refered to by the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society for “spearheading and inventive treatments utilizing miniaturized scale and nanoengineering methodologies and biomaterials to tissue building, medicate conveyance and disease therapeutics.”

Langer is eminent for his work on new and distinctive approaches to direct medications to patients. A biomedical architect who centers around biomaterials, he has built up an assortment of novel medication conveyance frameworks in view of polymers, including materials that can discharge tranquilizes constantly over a drawn out timeframe. In the field of nanotechnology, he is creating particles that exactly target ailment locales, including tumors.

Jacobs was chosen to the National Academy of Engineering in 1982, and was named its seat in May 2008. In 1994, Jacobs got the National Medal of Technology Award, the most astounding honor gave by the leader of the United States for unprecedented accomplishments in the commercialization of innovation.

Chou ’66, SM ’67, EE ’68, resigned senior VP of Intel Corp. what’s more, general supervisor of its Technology and Manufacturing Group, has been respected by the IEEE with the 2013 Robert N. Noyce Medal. This respect, supported by the Intel Foundation, is additionally made to Youssef A. El-Mansy, resigned VP and chief of Logic Technology Development at Intel. Every beneficiary is refered to “for setting up an exceptionally viable research-improvement fabricating approach that prompted industry authority in rationale innovation for cutting edge chip items.”

From 1966 to 1972, Jacobs filled in as teacher of software engineering and designing at the University of California at San Diego (UCSD); from 1959 to 1966, he showed electrical building at MIT. While at MIT, Jacobs co-wrote a course book with Jack Wozencraft, teacher of electrical building emeritus, about advanced interchanges, titled “Standards of Communication Engineering.”

In 1968, Chou began filling in as a semiconductor gadget design at the Fairchild Semiconductor R&D Laboratory. He joined Intel in 1971 and filled in as a specialized giver or administrator on a few gadget demonstrating, memory outline, and process improvement ventures, before accepting accountability for Intel’s procedure innovation advancement exertion. He drove his association to make major fundamental changes in innovative work and assembling strategies. These empowered Intel to create, and slope into high volume, creation of new ages of industry-driving incorporated circuit advances at two-year interims. He was senior VP and general director of Intel’s Technology and Manufacturing Group when he resigned in 2005.

As an undergrad at MIT, Chou got the Blonder-Tongue Foundation grant for guarantee in the field of gadgets.

Beranek, one of the authors and a previous leader of Bolt, Beranek and Newman (now BBN Technologies), was chosen to get the 2013 IEEE Founders Medal. Beranek, who instructed at MIT from 1947 to 1958, is refered to “for administration as a fellow benefactor of a chief counseling firm that formed present day acoustical practice and laid the preparation for the Internet, and for open administration.”

Chou was chosen to the National Academy of Engineering in 2004 for his spearheading deal with silicon forms. He has been a chief of Rambus Inc. since March 2006. In November 2002, Scientific American perceived Chou as one of the “Logical American 50” for driving the improvement of new materials that made conceivable the 130 nanometer standard utilized in the present age of processor chips.

Numerous other taking an interest understudies are taking a shot at research lined up with the interests of mechanical patrons that — alongside individual contributors including (EECS) graduated class Dr. Erika N. Edge and her better half Colin A. Point, and Dinarte R. Morais and Paul Rosenblum — offer help through the researchers program. Other than Texas Instruments, the modern supporters incorporate Analog Devices, Basis Technology, Denso, Draper Laboratory, eBay Inc., Facebook, Foxconn, Google, Intel, MediaTek, Qualcomm, Quanta Computer and VMware.

“Numerous understudies want a more top to bottom research encounter — one that comes full circle in results that could be distributed in a diary or best meeting, or propelled models that could be financially created,” says Chandrakasan, who is additionally the Joseph F. what’s more, Nancy P. Keithley Professor of Electrical Engineering.

MIT understudies have reacted energetically to the new chance. There are 86 members amid this pilot stage, and Chandrakasan expects more noteworthy numbers from divisions all through the Institute to enlist in the coming years. The program is available to junior and seniors.

SuperUROP is a consistent movement of UROP (Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program), which itself propelled in 1969 as a strong test carrying more youthful understudies into the lab out of the blue. In excess of 80 percent of the Institute’s students currently take an interest in the program, and normally they spend a semester encountering what it resembles to work in an examination research facility.
