Daniel P. Siewiorek, Buhl Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Computer Science, has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering "for contributions to wearable computers, multiprocessor design, reliable systems, and automated design synthesis."
Election to the National Academy of Engineering is among the highest professional distinctions awarded an engineer. Academy membership honors those who have made "important contributions to engineering theory and practice, including significant contributions to the literature of engineering theory and practice," and those who have demonstrated "unusual accomplishment in the pioneering of new and developing fields of technology."
The NAE elected 86 new members this year, including 8 foreign associates bringing the total U.S. membership to 2,027 and the number of foreign associates to 157.
