Outstanding Achievement Award Recipient
College of Science and Engineering, November 7, 2013
Mark S. Lundstrom received a bachelor of science degree (1973) and a master’s degree (1974) in electrical engineering from the College of Science and Engineering at the University of Minnesota. After working at Hewlett Packard for three years, he entered the Ph.D. program in electrical engineering at Purdue University. Immediately following graduation, he was hired as an assistant professor at Purdue where he quickly rose through the ranks. He has held the title of Don and Carol Scifres Distinguished Professor since 2001. Lundstrom is renowned for his development of theoretical techniques to simulate, understand the performance, and determine the limits of both conventional MOSFETs and novel electronic devices. His book Fundamentals of Carrier Transport is one of the most highly regarded treatises on the subject. He is the co-founder of the PUNCH project, the original WWW site that provided nanoelectronic simulations through the web. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering, a Fellow of several scientific societies, and has received the IEEE Electron Devices Society Education Award.
