I am delighted to introduce the 2006 Outstanding Electrical and Computer Engineers. Our seven honorees join a distinguished group of alumni who have previously received this honor, engineers who represent the finest in their fields. Each embodies the spirit of Purdue Engineering, applying a world view to work that has a universal impact. Please join me in congratulating our 2006 OECE “class” as they receive the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering’s top accolade for professional achievement.

Each fall we count it a privilege to recognize several alumni as our Outstanding Electrical and Computer Engineers. This year’s honorees have made significant contributions to the fields of engineering, academia, business, and beyond, and we applaud their accomplishments. As the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering prepares future engineers for their own professional pursuits, we look to the achievements of our honorees, which inspire our students to become the Outstanding Electrical and Computer Engineers of tomorrow.
