William Meng, an electrical engineering senior who will graduate in May, has won a 2020 National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) Fellowship Award for his academic excellence in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math achievements. As an undergraduate student, he has worked with Prof. Ken Shepard in the Bioelectronic Systems Laboratory and has also served as a teaching assistant and superuser in the Columbia Makerspace. In fall 2020, he will start his PhD studies in electrical engineering at Stanford University. The NDSEG Fellowship Program, which was established by Congress in 1989, supports students who have demonstrated ability and special aptitude for advancing science and engineering disciplines of military importance. It is sponsored by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), the Army Research Office (ARO), and the Office of Naval Research (ONR) under the Office of the Under Secretary for Research and Engineering.
