Assistant Professor Andrew Klein has been named the 2010-2011 Joseph Samuel Satin Distinguished Fellow in Electrical and Computer Engineering.

The Satin Fellowship was created to promote new ideas and teaching approaches, to make possible the fulfillment of special expertise needs, and to facilitate special research projects and other educational activities for which other funding may not be available.

Worcester Polytechnic Institute President Dennis Berkey congratulated and thanked Professor Klein adding, “Your consistently excellent student teaching evaluations in courses such as Information Theory and Introduction to Probabilistic Signals and Systems demonstrate your commitment to the educational enterprise. Your service to WPI, in your recent stint advising the Hong Kong IQP project teams and your intention to become a regular on-site advisor to Silicon Valley MQPs, reflect your dedication to students, and to teaching in innovative ways. Your many publications and active work advising and recruiting Ph.D. students reflect your successful research profile.”

The Satin Fellowship is awarded to a member of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department in recognition of the importance of encouraging excellence and supporting the exploration of new ideas and teaching approaches. It includes a substantial stipend to support these initiatives. The Fellowship was established in 1982 by Leonard Satin in memory of his father, Joseph Satin, and to recognize the outstanding teachers at the alma mater of Leonard's son, Joseph S. Satin II, who graduated from WPI in 1968. The award is also a tribute to the members of the Satin family, who built the Satin America Corp., a supplier of remanufactured circuit breakers, switchgear and unit substations for use in electric power distribution.
