Mark Rodwell joined the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at UCSB in 1988. He is an elected fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the recipient of IEEE’s David Sarnoff Award for exceptional contributions to electronics, and the 2022 University Research Award recipient from the Semiconductor Industry Association and the Semiconductor Research Corporation. He teaches several undergraduate core classes, including the junior-level courses on transistor circuits and a sophomore-level course on circuits and systems. 

This year marks the eighth time that graduating seniors have selected Rodwell for the Outstanding Electrical Engineering Faculty Award. 

“It is a pleasure to teach the undergraduates and to help them develop their interest in electrical engineering into their careers,” said Rodwell.
