Professor Wakin to be elevated to IEEE Fellow on January 1st. Congratulations!

Mike Wakin The following is from an email Prof. Wakin received:

Dear Michael B. Wakin:

Recognizing the achievements of its members is an important part of the mission of the IEEE. Each year, following a rigorous evaluation procedure, the IEEE Fellow Committee recommends a select group of recipients for elevation to IEEE Fellow. Less than 0.1% of voting members are selected annually for this member grade elevation.

It is my great pleasure to inform you that the IEEE Board of Directors, at its November 2020 meeting, elevated you to IEEE Fellow, effective 1 January 2021, with the following citation:

for contributions to sparsity-based signal processing and compressive sensing

Within the next two months, you will receive your IEEE Fellow pin and certificate. Both serve as visible recognition of your elevation to the highest grade of membership in the IEEE.

You bring honor to yourself and to IEEE by your achievements. Congratulations!

2020 Girls Lead the Way Program

Three High School Women at the 2020 Girls Lead the Way ProgramOn Saturday, Feb 29, the Electrical Engineering department hosted two workshop for the Girls Lead the Way. Ten Mines students worked with over 45 high school women in a soldering activity they brought home with them. While soldering they learned about basic electrical circuits, LEDs and got a chance to talk to our students about what it is like to be an engineering student.

STEM Scouts Lab at Parmalee Elementary School

Elementary students solder circuits.On Monday, Jan 13, Electrical Engineering students Paige and Ellie hosted a STEM Scouts Lab at Parmalee Elementary School. Paige and Ellie guided students in soldering LEDs and other parts to printed circuit boards. Everyone had a good time and learned some new skills in electronics fabrication.

In 2024, the year of our 150th anniversary, we will celebrate Colorado School of Mines’ past, present and possibilities. By celebrating and supporting the Campaign for MINES@150 you will help elevate Mines to be an accessible, top-of-mind and first-choice for students, faculty, staff, recruiters and other external partners. When you give, you are ensuring Mines becomes even more distinctive and highly sought-after by future students, alumni, industry, and government partners over the next 150 years. We look forward to celebrating Mines’ sesquicentennial with you and recognizing the key role you play in making the MINES@150 vision a reality through your investments of time, talent and treasure.
