2018 Vision Award for Excellence

Dr. Andrew Sarangan is the recipient of the 2018 Vision Award for Excellence, which recognizes faculty and staff who have made a significant contribution in the area of scholarship including traditional research or other forms of knowledge generation or a demonstrated commitment to lifelong learning.

Dr. Sarangan, professor, Department of Electro-Optics and Photonics, received multiple submissions for this award, which highlighted Dr. Sarangan’s prolific authoring and co-authoring of over 100 journal articles and conference proceedings as well as a textbook and book chapters. He also has received significant funding totaling over $6M at the University of Dayton. Dr. Sarangan was influential in the groundbreaking Nanofab Laboratory (aka “cleanroom”) and built it to what it is today for research and designing nanoscale electronic and photonic components. His mentoring skills with electrical and electro-optics graduate students are renowned. Among his notable activities, Dr. Sarangan landed an NSF-NUE grant to advance nanotechnology curriculum for undergraduate students at the University of Dayton and Sinclair Community College through an innovative delivery method for nanofabrication process demonstrations by electronically linking the cleanroom with the classroom in real time between the University and Sinclair College. Congratulations, Andrew!
