Hershkowitz receives IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society's highest award

Irving Langmuir Professor Emeritus of Engineering Physics Noah Hershkowitz will receive the 2015 IEEE Marie Sklodowska-Curie Award, the highest award of the IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society.

This will be the fifth time the IEEE has awarded the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Award, which includes a certificate, medal, and an honorarium. In granting the award, the 3,000-member society recognized Hershkowitz "for innovative research and inspiring education in basic and applied plasma science."

For nearly a century, the IEEE awards program has paid tribute to technical professionals whose exceptional achievements and outstanding contributions have made a lasting impact on technology, society, and the engineering profession. Each year the IEEE Awards Board recommends a select group of recipients to receive IEEE's most prestigious honors.
