Director of Electronics Design Center, Dr. CC Liu, named Distinguished University Professor

C.C. Liu, Wallace R. Persons Professor of Sensor Technology & Control and Professor of Chemical Engineering was awarded the permanent, honorific title of Distinguished University Professor.  This designation represents the highest honor that the University bestows upon a member of its professoriate.  C.C.’s stellar academic record, along with his impact and contributions in teaching and research is among his numerous distinctive achievements. This year we had many meritorious nominations and we look forward these and other submissions in the future.  Dr. Liu was identified as the most deserving by a rigorous review at both the school and university levels.

C.C. has been a member of our faculty for the past 33 years and has taught more than 2,000 undergraduate students, directly supervised more than 60 Ph.D. students and 40 visiting scholars and post-doctoral fellows during his career.  C.C. has many recognitions and a few being: Fellow of the Royal Chemistry Society, the recipient of the Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics and Engineering Mentoring, the Outstanding Achievement Award from the Electrochemical Society, along with numerous awards from our own university as well as international accolades.  He has been the director of the Electronics Design Center since 1985.  His scientific reputation, longstanding contributions for enabling faculty research both in engineering and medicine as well as his early international  outreach attest for this much deserved recognition.  Please join me in congratulating C.C. and his family, including his wife Ann Boughner, for this most prestigious award.


Warmest regards,

Jeffrey L. Duerk, Ph.D.

Dean, Case School of Engineering
