Thursday, February 5, 2015

Mike Todd joins 33 other Cornellians in the National Academy of Engineering (NAE).

Mike Todd, the Leon C. Welch Professor Emeritus in the School of Operations Research and Information Engineering, has been elected to The National Academy of Engineering (NAE). Todd was elected for contributions to the theory and application of algorithms for continuous optimization.

Election to the National Academy of Engineering is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer. Academy membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to "engineering research, practice, or education, including, where appropriate, significant contributions to the engineering literature," and to the "pioneering of new and developing fields of technology, making major advancements in traditional fields of engineering, or developing/implementing innovative approaches to engineering education."

Todd joins 33 other current or former Cornell faculty members to be selected to the NAE, including Bill Maxwell, the Andrew Schultz Jr. Professor Emeritus of Industrial Engineering in the School of Operations Research and Information Engineering.
