The number of ECE ILLINOIS faculty members.
The John Bardeen Fellowship in Electrical and Computer Engineering was set up to honor the memory of Professor John Bardeen. Professor Bardeen had a unique influence on the technical and scientific life of our time. He, with Walter Brattain, identified minority carrier injection in semiconductors and invented the transistor, which won them the Nobel Prize in physics in 1956. This event started a revolution in electronics and computer technology that is unparalleled and that continues to grow. No other invention of our time has had such a profound effect on society. John Bardeen had an equally profound influence on contemporary physics with the creation of the BCS theory of superconductivity, and its far-reaching influence on superconductivity itself and on various related problems. For this discovery he was the co-recipient of a second Nobel Prize in physics in 1972.
The awardees are selected using the following criteria:
Nominations will be requested from the faculty during the Fall semester. Faculty nominations for a student must consist of a letter of recommendation from the faculty member or intended research adviser and the nominee’s vita. These can be emailed to Pascal Youakim (firstname.lastname@example.org) during the application period.
The ECE Fellowship committee will make the selection based on the applications submitted by the deadline.
