Dear IEEE Members,
Distinguished Colleagues, and Friends,
Spanning three centuries, IEEE has helped engineer the future by engaging a broad array of technical professionals in
a diverse set of communities. In this 125th anniversary year,
IEEE celebrates this diversity as one of its greatest strengths.
Examples of this technical diversity are found among this year's
award recipients who have been cited for technological feats
that fostered faster, more reliable, and smaller computers; enabled deep-space exploration; made possible the expansion
of all types of communications through high-speed broadband
transmission; improved capabilities for digital storage technology; and advanced acoustic and radar detection, among others.
IEEE's recognition of these extraordinary contributions helps
make the accomplishments more visible to the public and
-enhances the image of these professionals and IEEE members worldwide. This year, we are also honoring our IEEE
student members by presenting the top three prizes from the
IEEE Presidents' Change the World competition. Students
were challenged to develop unique solutions to real-world
problems using engineering, science, computing and leadership skills to benefit the community and/or humanity.
Passionate individual and corporate donors as well as the IEEE
Foundation sponsor these IEEE awards. The Foundation, in addition to being a generous sponsor of the Medal of Honor and
other awards, also has recently established The Humanitarian
Technology Fund which will award grants to projects that develop and implement technological solutions for pressing
human needs, especially in developing countries.
Please help us in publicly praising and rewarding the work
of extraordinary technology professionals by nominating an
individual who has helped engineer a bright technological
future for us all.
IEEE President and CEO
John R. Vig
