Honors and Awards


Service to Penn State:

  • Member, University Faculty Senate, September 2013 - May 2017
  • Chairperson, Chair, Undergraduate Committee, January 2007 - September 2016

Service to External Organizations:




The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science was created in the spring of 2015 to allow greater access to courses offered by both departments for undergraduate and graduate students in exciting collaborative research in fields.

We offer B.S. degrees in electrical engineering, computer science, computer engineering and data science and graduate degrees (master's degrees and Ph.D.'s) in electrical engineering and computer science and engineering. EECS focuses on the convergence of technologies and disciplines to meet today’s industrial demands.
