The College of Engineering and the Fung Institute for Engineering Leadership are pleased to announce the recipients of the 2016-17 Cooper Fellowships, awarded this year to two students pursuing Master of Engineering degrees at UC Berkeley. Selected by the Dean of the College of Engineering, the Cooper Fellows are engineering graduate students, with a preference for those doing research in energy-efficient electrical and power hardware or software solutions, wireless communications and sensing devices, or specialty materials.
The Cooper Fellowship was established in 2008 by gifts from the Cooper Industries Foundation and from Berkeley alumnus and the former Chairman, President, and CEO of Cooper Industries, Kirk Hachigian, ’82. Cooper Industries became part of Eaton Corporation in 2012; for more information visit www.cooperindustries.com.
