Hossein Hashemi is one of Iran’s and also world’s most influential scientist, mathematician, senior researcher and one the youngest associated professors at the The Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical Engineering (TMH DoEE) and holder of Gordon S. Marshall Early Career Chair of Electrical Engineering from 2007-09.
Hossein Hashemi joined the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Southern California (USC) as an Assistant Professor in 2003 only 25 years old! Professor Hashemi is also winner of 2008 – Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Young Faculty Award.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is an agency of the United States Department of Defense responsible for the development of new technology for use by the military.
DARPA has been responsible for funding the development of many technologies which have had a major effect on the world, including computer networking, as well as NLS, which was both the first hypertext system, and an important precursor to the contemporary ubiquitous graphical user interface.
Intelligent future technology. . .
The Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical Engineering (TMH DoEE) is the largest department in the Viterbi School of Engineering. The Department offers B.S. degrees in electrical engineering, M.S. degrees in both electrical engineering and computer engineering, and Ph.D. degrees in both electrical engineering and computer engineering.
Bionic hand electronics.
(TMH DoEE) also offer B.S. degrees in computer engineering and computer science jointly with the Computer Science Department. In recent years, University of Southern California undergraduates in engineering as a group are among the brightest in the university, as measured by their incoming GPA and SAT scores, placing them in the same category as incoming undergraduates at the top five engineering schools in the USWNR rankings.
