For innovations in team-oriented signature design and inspiring women and underrepresented minority students to pursue engineering

With pioneering team-based capstone design courses, Christopher Rose has encouraged his communications theory students to think creatively and dream big in realizing important technologies benefitting society. Rose was an early champion of the capstone concept while at Rutgers University. He challenged his students by asking how they would like to see wireless technology change the world and gave them to tools and support to do so. Successful before-their-time results from his students’ capstone projects included wireless parking meters and parking decks, an app that monitors vital statistics of firefighters, and an energy-saving mesh network for reactive lighting. The team-based, big-picture interdisciplinary research opportunities of these courses attract women and underrepresented minorities to the field, and Rose has also devoted significant time and effort to mentoring young, underrepresented faculty and students at universities across the country.

An IEEE Fellow, Rose is a professor of engineering and associate provost for STEM Initiatives at Brown University, Providence, RI, USA.

For creating an inexpensive single-board computer and surrounding ecosystem for education and consumer applications

Confronted with declining interest in computer science programs, Eben Upton was inspired to create an inexpensive, fully functional, programmable computer to encourage students to engage with computers and learn to code. Upton’s Raspberry Pi single-board computer combines embedded, low-power video and graphics cores with an ARM CPU to create a simple, standardized low-cost computer platform. With the addition of a keyboard, mouse, and monitor, the Raspberry Pi provides a complete 64-bit desktop computer with access to millions of Linux applications. Upton has allowed students, enthusiasts, and technologists to focus their creativity on their projects—whether it be a media player, laptop, lawn-sprinkler control, or robotic kits—to name just a few. Upton launched the Raspberry Pi Foundation in 2009 to promote the study of computer science and to put the fun back into learning computing.

Upton is currently chief executive officer with Raspberry Pi (Trading) Ltd, Cambridge, UK.
