This endowment was established in 2019 by Ganesh and Hema Moorthy to recruit, reward and retain UW ECE faculty members who have demonstrated significant promise early in their careers.
UW’s Robotics and Controls researchers are leaders in the areas of surgical and bio-robotics, haptics, smart cities, and network control systems. They collaborate with and hold secondary appointments in computer science and engineering, bioengineering, and the UW Medical Center, and are active participants in research centers such as the Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering.

In a unique UW ECE course, students learn how to develop smartphone apps capable of taking full advantage of the device's capabilities.
This prestigious award from The Marconi Society acknowledges Iyer's innovative work developing bio-inspired and bio-integrative wireless sensor systems.
UW ECE doctoral students Vikram Iyer and Ali Najafi and other researchers at UW have developed a tiny, smartphone-controlled camera that can ride aboard an insect or insect-sized robot, giving us a steerable beetle's-eye view of their world.
For a highly collaborative capstone project that entails developing a remote-controlled sensing vehicle, moving the course online due to COVID-19 meant twice the opportunity to utilize problem-solving skills.
WiBotic is a UW ECE spin-off company co-founded by Professor Joshua Smith and alum, Ben Waters.
