1974 - B.Tech - Electrical Engineering Professor of Electrical and Biomedical Engineering @ MIT, USA
George C. Verghese (B.Tech Electronics, 1974) has been on the faculty of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology since 1979, following a PhD earned at Stanford University. He holds the Henry Ellis Warren Chair in Electrical and Biomedical Engineering at MIT, and is also a MacVicar Faculty Fellow, MIT’s highest award for contributions to undergraduate education. Prof. Verghese’s research has centered on theory and applications of modeling, analysis, identification and control for dynamical systems. His twenty-five years devoted to studies in power systems and power electronics, to coauthoring an influential textbook in power electronics, and to various other professional activities were recognized by election as IEEE Fellow. Since then his application focus has moved to biomedicine, and specifically to real-time physiologically based inference from clinical data. He has also recently coauthored an advanced undergraduate textbook on signals, systems and inference.
In recognition of the academic excellence and achievements of Prof. George Verghese at the highest international levels of technology education and research, IIT Madras and its alumni are proud to present him this award.
