Anton Tkachenko, ERC student in the Electrical, Computer and Systems Engineering Department (ECSE) at RPI was awarded the Veera and Arjun Saxena Fellowship in Microelectronics. The $3,000 award is given each academic year to an outstanding PhD student in the ECSE Department. Students are selected based on grade point average, overall performance, and faculty recommendations. The ERC congratulates Anton!
The Smart Lighting ERC invites students interested in improving the efficiency of lighting across campus to join the Smart Lighting Sustainability Club. The kick-off meeting for the fall semester will be held at 7 pm in CII 7128. The club was established to increase campus awareness of the positive impact of solid state lighting, consistent with Rensselaer’s long term energy conservation plan.
