Dr. Fischell Awarded Inaugural ECEDHA Industry Award

The Electrical and Computer Engineering Department Heads Association (ECEDHA) named Clark School benefactor Dr. Robert Fischell a recipient of the inaugural ECEDHA Industry Award.

Given to companies or individuals in recognition of seminal contributions to engineering education that extend well beyond typical industry-university relationships, the award was presented to Fischell at the ECEDHA annual conference, which took place March 21-25 in Napa, Calif. The selection is based primarily on a qualitative evaluation of educational contributions to recognize and encourage effective engagement in engineering education by industry representatives. The ECEDHA noted that Fischell was chosen largely for his passion to create new devices for the sake of mankind, as well as for his activities and lifelong achievements in developing, mentoring and teaching students.

The ECEDHA annual conference represents the largest gathering of electrical and computer engineering (ECE) department heads across the United States and Canada. The association notes that deans, laboratory managers, faculty members and nearly 50 industry leaders were on hand to demonstrate the latest ECE technologies.
