Mohanty Saraju Mohanty, professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, recently received the Outstanding Service Award from the IEEE Consumer Electronics Society. Mohanty received the award for his outstanding service to the society and his leadership as the editor-in-chief of IEEE Consumer Electronics Magazine.

“I feel very honored to have been acknowledged by the IEEE Consumer Electronics Society,” said Mohanty. “I’ve enjoyed the time I’ve spent with the society and can’t wait to see what comes next.”

Mohanty’s leadership resulted in a surplus of funds for the International Conference on Computers in Education (ICCE) 2018, establishing the conference as a benchmark for other ICCEs and IEEE Consumer Electronics Society conferences. 

Mohanty also increased the number of magazine issues per year, raising it from four to six, with a goal of reaching the society’s members on a more frequent basis.
