UCSB’s Mishra elected member of US National Academy of Engineering

The Washington DC-based National Academy of Engineering (NAE) has elected 65 new members and nine foreign associates, bringing the US membership to 2246 and the number of foreign associates to 197.

Newly elected members include professor Umesh K. Mishra of the University of California, Santa Barbara's department of electrical and computer engineering, for “contributions to the development of gallium nitride electronics and other high-speed, high-power semiconductor electronic devices”.
Election to the NAE is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer.

Membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to “engineering research, practice, or education, including, where appropriate, significant contributions to the engineering literature” and to the “pioneering of new and developing fields of technology, making major advancements in traditional fields of engineering, or developing/implementing innovative approaches to engineering education”.
