The Philadelphia section of IEEE on April 13 awarded Drexel ECE Professor Dr. Baris Taskin with one of three Young Electrical Engineer of the Year awards for creative and recognized important works by an engineer under 35 years of age.
Dr. Taskin has been in the department since 2005, after graduating from the University of Pittsburgh with a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering. He heads the Drexel VLSI lab, and is widely published in the field.
