Prof. Edward J. Delp to be inducted into Purdue's Book of Great Teachers
Edward J. Delp, the Charles William Harrison Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, has been selected for induction into Purdue University’s Book of Great Teachers, which honors outstanding teaching faculty who have demonstrated sustained excellence in the classroom.
The Book of Great Teachers, a permanent wall display in the west foyer of the Purdue Memorial Union, was first unveiled in 1999. It currently bears the names of 384 past and present faculty members who have devoted their lives to excellence in teaching and scholarship. Honorees include those nominated by students, alumni and colleagues, and professors with 10 years of service to the University who have been honored with the Charles B. Murphy Outstanding Undergraduate Teaching Award, recognized as Indiana Professor of the Year, or named by the trustees as distinguished professors of teaching. The nomination process for the book occurs every five years. The last ceremony was held in 2013, when 68 faculty members were added to the book. This year, 45 names will be added at an induction ceremony on Tuesday, December 11th in the Purdue Memorial Union.
Prof. Delp is an alumnus of Purdue ECE, having earned his PhD in 1979. He joined the faculty in August 1984. His research interests include image and video processing, image analysis, computer vision, image and video compression, multimedia security, medical imaging, multimedia systems, communication and information theory.
