Edward C. Jordan Professorship in Electrical and Computer Engineering
In fall 2003, Professor Rao was named to be the first recipient of the Edward C. Jordan Professorship in Electrical and Computer Engineering. The Jordan Professorship was created to honor the memory of Professor Jordan, who served as the department head for 25 years, and to be held by "a member of the faculty of the department who has demonstrated the qualities of Professor Jordan and whose work would best honor the legacy of Professor Jordan." The investiture ceremony for the Jordan Professorship took place on April 14, 2004, at which time Professor Rao delivered a response speech, relating his connection to Professor Jordan and expressing gratitude to him.
