Former Space Grant Fellow, Kendall Ching, is co-winner of the Alton B. Zerby and Carl T. Koerner Outstanding Electrical Engineering Student award. This award is presented by Eta Kappa Nu, a national honor society for electrical and computer engineering. Kendall will receive the award on October 18 from the society’s president at the WESCON Awards luncheon in San Jose, Calif. The award includes a certificate, a plaque and a cash grant. Kendall was selected from twelve finalists by a panel of nationally recognized electrical engineers and educators.
As an undergraduate Kendall was co-author on four publications, including two articles in the prestigious IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques. He received a special commendation from Gov. Ben Cayetano for his Space Grant-funded research on active-antenna arrays and novel multiplayer circuits. His Space Grant mentor at U.H. Manoa was Dr. Wayne Shiroma. Kendall has accepted a position with ON Semiconductors, a Phoenix, Ariz. company specializing in power management and broadband circuits.
