Andre DeHon to Receive 2020 IEEE Computer Society Undergraduate Teaching Award
The Mary Kenneth Keller Computer Science & Engineering Undergraduate Teaching Award honors outstanding contributions to undergraduate education made through teaching and service.
Andre DeHon, professor in the Departments of Electrical and Systems Engineering and Computer and Information Science, has been named to receive the IEEE Computer Society Mary Kenneth Keller Computer Science and Engineering Undergraduate Teaching Award “for outstanding educational leadership in the creation and growth of a modern computer engineering program at the University of Pennsylvania.”
DeHon is broadly interested in how we physically implement computations from substrates, including very large-scale integration and molecular electronics, up through architecture, computer-aided design, and programming models. He places special emphasis on spatial programmable architectures and interconnect design and optimization.
At Penn Engineering, DeHon oversaw the reformulation of the Computer Engineering undergraduate program from 2006 and has served as chair of the program since then. He has served as undergraduate chair for Electrical and Systems Engineering since 2012, which includes programs in Electrical Engineering and System Science and Engineering, as well as, Computer Engineering, including leading major revamps in all programs.
A plaque, certificate and $2,000 honorarium are awarded for outstanding contributions to undergraduate education through teaching and service.
