“I am delighted to recognize the 2012 Outstanding Electrical and Computing Engineers, as we celebrate not only the successes of our OECEs, but the successes of our on-campus ECE family, as well. Our OECE honorees join a distinguished group of alumni who have previously received this honor, engineers who represent the finest in their fields; and who embody the spirit of Purdue Engineering, applying a world view to work that has a universal impact. We are proud to count each of our honorees among the Purdue ECE family of extraordinary people who are making global impact. Please join me in congratulating our ECE honorees and our 2010 OECE honorees as they receive the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering’s top accolade for professional achievement.”

"I am honored to recognize this select group of alumni with the title of Outstanding Electrical and Computer Engineers. This award is given to individuals who represent the finest talent in their fields. Their extraordinary professional contributions are shown through hard work, leadership, economic development in their communities and around the world, and by giving back to academia. The honorees’ accomplishments act as a shining example to our students as they set out to make their own contributions in their chosen pursuit. We would also like to take this opportunity to recognize the accomplishments of our ECE faculty and to celebrate the entire Purdue ECE community. By their accomplishments and service, these leaders, along with our Outstanding Electrical and Computer Engineer Alumni, raise the prestige of the entire Purdue community."
