Muhannad Bakir has been selected to participate in the National Academy of Engineering’s 18th annual U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium. An associate professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech, Dr. Bakir was among 78 engineers between the ages of 30 to 45 who were chosen to take part in this event.
The participants–from industry, academia, and government–were nominated by fellow engineers or organizations and chosen for their exceptional engineering research and technical contributions from approximately 300 applicants. The symposium will be held September 13-15 at the General Motors Technical Center in Warren, Mich. and will examine serious games, vehicle electrification, climate engineering, and engineering materials for the bioengineering interface.
Prior to joining the ECE faculty in 2010, Dr. Bakir was a research engineer in the Nanotechnology Research Center at Georgia Tech from 2003-2010. His research interests include 3D integrated circuits, sensor-CMOS integration, interconnect technologies, and nanoelectronics. He was also recently chosen for a 2012 DARPA Young Faculty Award (see related article).
