Hello Friends,

Postcard Body

It’s been a while since our last newsletter— greetings!

Embracing innovation has always been a part of the Electrical Engineering department. And in recent years, COVID restrictions tested all of us with the rapid transition of courses, office hours, and research to an online environment, all while enacting health & safety protocols. And through all of it, what really shines through is our Stanford community's flexibility, innovation, and camaraderie!

In that spirit, I’d like to acknowledge all of you for going above and beyond – faculty for the collaborative transition to online (and back again); students for their focus, resilience, and trust; staff for ensuring both critical and non-critical systems remained accessible for everyone; and our alumni for their unwavering support.

I hope you enjoy this issue of our newsletter.
Feel free to drop me a line about how you are these days!

See you on campus,
Jelena Vuckovic

"I knew I loved engineering after taking it as an elective in high school, but I fell in love with electrical engineering because I was fascinated with laptops and cellphones back then."
