ECE Prof. Tom Parks has been named as a co-recipient of the 2004 IEEE Jack Kilby Signal Processing Medal, along with James McClellan, "for fundamental contributions to digital filter design and interpolation, especially for Parks-McClellan algorithm." The IEEE Jack S. Kilby Signal Processing Medal was established by the Board of Directors in 1995 and may be presented "for outstanding achievements in signal processing." The medal is named in honor of Jack S. Kilby. His innovation was a monumental precursor to the development of the signal processor and digital signal processing. The award consists of a gold medal, bronze replica, certificate, and a cash honorarium.

Rick Johnson, an engineering professor on the Hill—and, at the risk of a mixed metaphor, something of a Renaissance man. At Cornell since 1981, Johnson has spent decades teaching and doing research in electrical engineering, particularly in the fields of control systems and signal processing. But over the past twelve years, his interests have entailed as much art as science. A pioneer in the field of computational art history, Johnson leverages both his engineering acumen and his abiding passion for art to study the physical materials with which works are made.
