Wollenberg elected to NAE
Professor Bruce Wollenberg (electrical and computer engineering) has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) for his contributions to control centers for electric power grids and to power engineering education. Election to the NAE is among the highest professional distinctions accorded an engineer. NAE president William Wulf announced the election of 74 new members and 10 foreign associates, bringing the academy's total U.S. membership to 2,195 and the number of foreign associates to 178.
An article about Wollenberg's research was featured in the fall 2000 issue of Inventing Tomorrow magazine. "Transforming electric utilities"
