Two elected to engineering academy
Princeton NJ -- Professors Stephen Forrest and Dudley Saville have been elected to membership in the National Academy of Engineering, one of the highest distinctions in the field of engineering.
Forrest and Saville were among 77 new members elected to the academy, which honors those who have made "important contributions to engineering theory and practice" and those who have demonstrated "unusual accomplishment in the pioneering of new and developing fields of technology." They join 15 other Princeton faculty members who are part of the academy.
The academy cited Forrest, the James McDonnell Distinguished University Professor of Electrical Engineering, for "advances in optoelectronic devices, detectors for fiber optics and efficient organic LEDs for displays." Forrest joined the Princeton faculty in 1992.
"The election of these two outstanding professors highlights the distinction of our engineering faculty at Princeton," said Maria Klawe, dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science. "Since our engineering school is relatively small, it is quite an achievement if just one of our faculty is elected in a particular year. To have two members of the faculty elected into this elite body in one year is indicative of the high quality of our faculty. Each of them has contributed in innumerable ways to their respective scholarly fields, as well as to the successes of our teaching and research programs."
