Anand Sarwate selected for the 2018 A. Walter Tyson Assistant Professorship Award

Dean Tom Farris of the School of Engineering has just announced that Assistant Professor Anand Sarwate has been selected for the 2018 A. Walter Tyson Assistant Professorship Award. The Tyson fund, established by A. Walter Tyson, a 1952 alumnus of the School, is used to recruit promising junior faculty. Funds made available through the generosity of the Tyson Family are used to offset the School's investments in talented young faculty. With this award, funds will be used toward the School commitments that were made toward Professor Sarwate's start-up package.

Congratulations on this well-deserved recognition, Anand!
