Internships are an eye-opening experience for many Carnegie Mellon University students. They can spark interest in a career path and build professional relationships that last a lifetime. For ECE alumnus Will Lee (’94), his sophomore year internship helped him discover something a little more unexpected: a passion for sailing. Now, Lee has over 20 years of sailing experience that has taken him all over the world. He recently competed in the Singlehanded Transpacific Yacht Race (SHTP), where he sailed 2,200 miles—by himself. https://bit.ly/3FUUaJP

You don’t have to be an engineer to know that water and electronics don’t mix. But what if you wanted to use a sensing circuit to study small-scale features in a community of cells?

ECE’s Marc Dandin may soon have a solution. His latest study aims to create circuits that can function in wet environments.

A lifetime of innovation and leadership in the suburbs of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania has inspired a Carnegie Mellon alumnus to make a generous gift to support electrical and computer engineering at the institution.

Alumnus Giorgio Coraluppi has made a commitment that will endow the headship for the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. This transformative endowment to support the department head will be an essential cornerstone to the growth of department initiatives.

“One of the motivations was the desire to have a strong relationship with the academic institution where I had started,” states Coraluppi. “I started at Carnegie Mellon University during my first years in the United States. These were important years in which I learned to appreciate this first-class academic institution. CMU reinforced my desire for intellectual openness.”

Coraluppi appreciated the unbiased intellectual framework that is prevalent at the university, and instills this mindset at his company today.
