IEEE Computer Society honors Electrical Engineering Professor

Yale Nance Patt, who earned three electrical engineering degrees, then went on to teach  at universities and colleges across the United States, will receive this year’s Harry H. Goode Award from the IEEE Computer Society.  Dr. Patt (his PhD is from Stanford) is well known to decades of college students as a caring mentor,  innovative researcher and intellectual powerhouse, who “has also taught more than 5000 engineers in industry, — in ACM/IEEE conference tutorials and in short courses at company sites.” His accomplishments and interests include such diverse projects as the problems of the microprocessors of the future, and the Mathematics Geneaology Project (which has the ambitious stated purpose of intending ” to compile information about ALL the mathematicians of the world”.) In its press release, the IEEE Computer Society honors Dr. Patt’s “nearly half a century of significant contributions to information processing, including microarchitecture insights, a breakaway textbook, and mentoring future leaders.”  Congratulations, Dr. Patt for demonstrating that the ambitions of an electrical engineer need know no bounds!
