Harris Graduate Student Awards 2014

CLEMSON - Outstanding graduate students were recognized at this spring's Electrical and Computer Engineering Graduate Student Achievement Award Ceremony. Graduate students Ryan Izard and Guoxin Liu received Harris Awards, two department-wide awards which have been given each year for the past 29 years in recognition of outstanding accomplishment in the preceding year by a current Clemson graduate student in each of two areas: laboratory teaching and research.

Ryan Izard received the Harris Award for the Outstanding Graduate Laboratory Teaching Assistant in 2013 based on evaluations by undergraduates enrolled in ECE laboratory courses and assessment by the faculty supervisors of the laboratories. Izard completed the B.S. degree in computer engineering at Clemson in 2012, and he is currently pursuing the Ph.D. degree in computer engineering with an emphasis in communications systems and networking under the direction of Prof. K.C. Wang. 

Guoxin Liu received the Harris Award for the Outstanding Graduate Researcher in 2013 based on the recommendation of a faculty member and evaluation by a committee of ECE faculty, which found his record of research productivity and scholarship outstanding. Liu completed his B.S. degree in software engineering at the Beihang University in 2006, and he is currently pursuing the Ph.D. degree in computer engineering with an emphasis in computer systems architecture under the direction of Prof. Helen Shen.  

Since their inception, the Harris Awards have been accompanied by a monetary stipend, which is provided by the generosity of Harris Corp. The Holcombe Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering appreciates the support and encouragement that Harris and its employees provide to our department and our students.
