Charles F. (BSE EE ’63, MSE ’65, PhD ’70) and Patricia L. (BS Ed ’64, MS ’67) Krumm provided a gift to endow the George I. Haddad Graduate Fellowship Fund. Dr. and Mrs. Krumm have named the fund in honor of Professor Haddad and in recognition of his outstanding teaching and scholarly contributions to the field of electrical and computer engineering. The Fund will provide support to full-time graduate students in the division of Electrical and Computer Engineering. This gift qualified for the Third Century Matching Initiative.
A former doctoral student of Professor George Haddad, Mr. Krumm attributes his education at Michigan Engineering and mentee experience with Professor Haddad as the foundation of his successful career. An IEEE fellow and holder of five patents, Mr. Krumm has worked at Hughes, Raytheon, Conexant, and several small start-up companies.
In commenting on establishing this fellowship, Mr. Krumm said, “Professor Haddad provided a stellar example. He spent his entire career educating students and building a world-class department of electrical engineering and computer science at Michigan.”
Inspired by Prof. Haddad’s example, the Krumms have provided this gift to support graduate students who seek an education in electrical engineering and computer science. They hope others will be encouraged to honor Prof. Haddad and assist future students by visiting this link to make a gift to the George I. Haddad Graduate Fellowship Fund.
