Some 40 years ago, when Hemant Thapar first considered where to attend graduate school, Purdue topped his list. For good reason. Highly ranked, the (then) School of Electrical Engineering produced some of the world's foremost research in his chosen area - circuits and systems. This year, Thapar (MSEE '77, PhD '79) is helping to make graduate school an easier option for students at his alma mater.
