Distinguished engineering alumni honored

Abstract:
In recognition of their outstanding contributions to fields ranging from nanotechnology and information management to medicine, materials and agriculture, the University of Wisconsin-Madison College of Engineering will honor nine influential alumni on Oct. 26 at the 60th annual Engineers' Day celebration.

The honorees are:

* Matthew F. Laudon, MS '93, PhD '96, mechanical engineering, Early Career Award. Laudon is co-founder, Clean Technology and Sustainable Industries Organization; and co-founder and executive director of business development, Nano Science and Technology Institute, Cambridge, Mass. Laudon's industry experience includes positions with the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology of Lausanne, Motorola in Los Alamos National Laboratories, and several Boston-area start-ups that focused on micro and nanotechnology commercialization and partnership development. He also co-founded several technology-based and technology-transfer companies. Most recently, he started the nonprofit Clean Technology and Sustainable Industries Organization (CTSI), which aims to advance the commercialization and global adoption of clean technologies and sustainable industry practices. To meet these objectives, Laudon works with a community of industry, academic and government leaders who are committed to a safer, cleaner and more productive world.
