to our Fall 2019 Newsletter

I am pleased to provide an update on our vibrant community of students, faculty, and alums here at the Electrical Engineering Department at Columbia University.
We are actively looking to further grow and we have launched a search for a new junior faculty member in the department. Please encourage your graduating doctoral students or postdocs bound for academia to apply  here .

We also have plenty of exciting opportunities for students to apply to our Master’s and Doctoral programs and many of our research groups offer postdoctoral positions.
Our faculty and students continue to receive international acclaim. Prof. Ethan Katz-Bassett received the 2019 SIGCOMM Rising Star award . Our newest faculty member Prof. Asaf Cidon received the USENIX Distinguished paper award . PhD student Anthony Rizzo won the 2019 Synopsys Robert S. Hilbert Memorial Optical Design Competition , while EE alumna Miriam Marwick received IDA's Prestigious Award for Excellence in Research .
Our fall semester is off to a running start with many upcoming activities. We are excited to host Dr. Andrew Viterbi for our Armstrong Memorial Lecture on October 15th. The  F1/10 Autonomous Racing Competition will take place on October 14th and promises to be a lot of fun.
My best wishes for a successful fall semester!
