Congratulations to GTPG member Erik Centeno! He was awarded the 2020 ECE Opportunity Research Scholars (ORS) Outstanding Service Award for the academic year. Erik has been a tireless member of ORS for four years, serving on our very own Space Solar Power team. He has graduated this spring from Georgia Tech and will be joining AT&T in Atlanta. Well done, Erik!
The 18th annual School of ECE Opportunity Research Scholars presentations completed in April (virtually, of course).
