ECE student is recognized and is awarded two scholarships by IEEE and IEEE PES

Last month a ECE student was awarded two scholarships for his accomplishments as a member of IEEE HKN, the electrical engineering honor society here at Miami.

Jack Knoll, a senior electrical engineering major, was awarded a one scholarship for $1000 from the Cincinnati Chapter of IEEE and a second scholarship of $2000 from the IEEE Power and Energy Society (PES).

He was able to receive these awards because of his accomplishments, and the essays and personal statements that he had written. He says that he owes this achievement to the help of Dr. Mark Scott, assistant professor in the department of electrical and computer engineering. “Not only did he notify me about these scholarships, but...he wrote recommendation letters for me and spent many hours [discussing future career opportunities],” noted Knoll.

He hopes to continue his academic success into obtaining his masters after graduation. Knoll desires to have a future career in power engineering, and thinks his experiences at Miami will allow for future success in this field.

Outside of the classroom, Knoll is involved in Tau Beta Pi, the engineering honors society, Alpha Phi Omega, a service fraternity, and Scuba Diving Club.

We cannot wait to see what the next semester holds for Knoll and all of our other CEC students!
