This past weekend, 2/4/23, the EE department held a soldering session for the SWE Girls Lead the Way event. The Mines SWE chapter invited high school women in the Denver area to come to Mines and participate in a full day of actives from 15 different departments. Mines students, mostly Electrical Engineers, spent most of their Saturday assisting three groups of young women to solder components onto an RGB LEDs PCB. Our students were inspiring, engaging and thoughtful in their interactions. Our EE participants were Abigal Thompson, Calla Winner, Devon Davis, Ethan Hansen, Haley Otting, Jamie Regan, Kyleigh Speier, Madeleine Nightengale-Luhan, and Bailey Oteri.
Please join us in congratulating our PhD student, Asmaa Romia, for receiving the Helene M. Overly Memorial Scholarship from WTS-CO. WTS is an international organization dedicated to the professional advancement of women in transportation. Founded in 1977, WTS boasts roughly 8,500 members internationally — both women and men. WTS exists to raise the profile of the transportation profession and to help women find opportunity and recognition within the industry. Congratulations, Asmaa! We are so proud of you!
Please visit the WTS-CO website for more details.

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!
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.
