 Brueck Promoted to UNM Distinguished Professor

10/26/2006

The Office of the Provost recently announced promotion of ECE Prof. Steven R.J. Brueck, director of UNM's Center for High Technology Materials, to Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Dr. Brueck, who joined the ECE faculty in 1985, is the first distinguished professor in the School of Engineering. Just 23 other UNM faculty members have this title.

UNM confers its title of distinguished professor on "individuals who have demonstrated outstanding achievements and are nationally and internationally renowned as scholars," according to the university's Faculty Handbook.

It is the highest faculty title that UNM bestows and, according to the handbook, "is used only for a few of its most prominent faculty members."

Dr. Brueck is a fellow of IEEE, the Optical Society of America, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. His awards and honors include receiving IEEE's Millennium Medal in 2000 and, in 1991, the School of Engineering's Outstanding Researcher Award.

Dr. Brueck provides technical and administrative leadership at CHTM, which generates more than $9 million annually in grants and contracts and is an internationally recognized center for optoelectronics, microelectronics and nanotechnology research. More than 80 graduate students are conducting their research at CHTM, more than half of whom are working toward advanced degrees with ECE.

Among countless other contributions to his field, Dr. Brueck is the founding editor of IEEE's Journal of Special Topics in Quantum Electronics. He also serves on the faculty of UNM's Physics and Astronomy Department.

Photonics Spectra magazine recently interviewed Dr. Brueck, and a PDF of the article is here. For more information about his activities, research and accomplishments, please refer to his website at www.chtm.unm.edu/brueck/.

Prof. Brueck received his PhD in electrical and computer engineering at MIT. He also shares the distinction, with ECE's Prof. Edl Schamiloglu, of being a graduate of the Bronx High School of Science. One of the best high schools in the United States, this school in New York City has seven nobel laureates in physics among its alumni -- more than most nations.

Congratulations, Dr. Brueck, for this well-deserved recognition of your considerable accomplishments and your many contributions to UNM and its students.
