Grad Students Nathaniel Chaney and Yao Yao Receives 2014 Wu Prize for Excellence
The Princeton Engineering Office of Graduate Affairs is pleased to announce that two of the department's graduate students, Nathaniel Chaney and Yao Yao, have each received a Wu Prize for Excellence. The Wu Prize is awarded to engineering graduate students who have performed at the highest level as scholars and researchers, and who will be entering their final year of study this fall. The Wu Prizes for Excellence come from the generous donation of Sir Gordon Y.S. Wu '58. In the Fall 2014, each will receive a one-time $4,000 supplement to their regular academic year support.
The department selected them on the basis of their excellence in courses, research, and teaching during their time at Princeton. Nathaniel is advised by Professor Eric Wood, and Yao's advisor is Professor Branko Glisic.
Congratuations to Nate and Yao Yao on their well-deserved honor!
