We’re still unsure what fall will bring, but as businesses reopen and factories roar back to life, we all welcome a return to something resembling normalcy. The university graduated nearly 500 new Case scientists and engineers May 17, with President Barbara Snyder expressing admiration for their pandemic-tested resiliency. Recently, two Case professors were honored with prestigious awards, and a Case alumnus continues to astonish as an 80something computer programmer. Learn about that and more in our May newsletter.

ULTIMATE TEAM PLAYER

Why do graduate students love Anant Madabhushi, one of the top patent producers at Case Western Reserve? He realizes they are the key to his world-class research lab. Meet the Diekhoff Prize winner.

 

THE ART OF THE ALGORITHM

There’s a secret to the success of Donald Knuth ’60, one of the world’s greatest computer programmers: He’s a storyteller at heart.

“Good coding is synonymous with beautiful expression.”

 

A RESEARCHER WITH IMPACT

Professor and energy researcher Robert Savinell was awarded the 2020 Hovorka Prize. It recognizes his groundbreaking work in the field of electrochemistry and its impact on the world.

 

ENGINEERING NEW SENSATIONS

The work of Professor Dustin Tyler, PhD ’99, is bringing new hope and capabilities to people with paralysis. Hear from the director of the university’s new Human Fusion Institute in the latest episode of Think[box] Radio, the podcast from the Case School of Engineering.

 

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

Barbara Snyder offered well wishes to a graduating class robbed of its senior moments but ready to face the future. “As much as we have missed, we have also seen the best of Case Western Reserve.”

 

CLASS 2020 SNAPSHOT

On Sunday, May 17, 498 newly-minted scientists and engineers became members of the Case Alumni Association. Here are some of their distinguishing characteristics:

• It’s the first class in a century to graduate into a pandemic, which disrupted their schooling and their career plans

• It’s the first class in university history to receive degrees through an online, “virtual” commencement ceremony

• 485 graduates received degrees from the Case School of Engineering

• 20% of the CSE graduates, the highest percentage, majored in the computer sciences

• 18% specialized in biomedical engineering

• 13 graduates accepted a bachelor of science degree from the College of Arts and Sciences in either math or applied science

• The 175 women who received math, science or engineering degrees represented 35% of the graduating class

• Graduate degrees were conferred upon 124 men and women, who received either an ME, an MSE, an MEM, or a doctorate

 

DAY OF GIVING 2020

The Day of Giving June 9 offers an excellent opportunity to show your support for Case and help the School of Engineering emerge from this crisis as strong as ever.
