Congratulations to Prof. Elisabeth Paté-Cornell, who was awarded a 2021 IEEE Simon Ramo Medal!

Prof. Paté-Cornell received the medal "for sustained leadership in developing theory and applications of probability risk analysis for the design and evaluation of complex engineering systems."

The Simon Ramo Medal is awarded for exceptional achievement in systems engineering and systems science. In the evaluation process, the following criteria are considered: significance of achievement in systems engineering and systems science or for technical leadership in a major innovative engineering project within the scope of the IEEE, originality, breadth, impact on technology, patents/publications, and the quality of the nomination.

Competition for the medals is worldwide and considered the most visible in the field. Prof. Paté-Cornell's honor is a tribute to the MS&E department.

Each year the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) Awards Board recommends a select group of recipients to receive IEEE’s most prestigious honors. These are the scholars whose exceptional achievements and outstanding contributions have made a lasting impact on technology, society, and the engineering profession.
